DESCRIPTION:
(from AMC Networks' press release, August 2020) The A Word returns to the idyllic landscape of the Lake District and to the city of Manchester. In the two years since we left our family, everything has changed once more. Joe is ten, and living in two places at once, processing the seismic change in his life through the filter of his autism. His parents, Alison and Paul, are divorced and living 100 miles apart. His sister Rebecca has returned home from University with a secret that will change everything further. Only Joe's granddad Maurice is holding it together, and if Maurice is the one holding it together you know you are in trouble. Peter Bowker's 6-part drama revisits the funny, messy, mixed-up lives of the extended Hughes and Scott family as they struggle to meet the challenges of parenthood, disability and separation and to hold the family together around the child who needs them all.
