 Manchester: 100 Days After The Attack
May 2017 - a suicide bomber targets a pop concert in Manchester packed with children and their parents. Twenty two are killed and 59 are seriously injured.
This is the powerful and emotional story of some of the people at the heart of the events of that night and how they've coped in the following 100 days.
From the police, paramedics and medical teams - to those remembering loved ones and those rebuilding lives.
Among others we meet the father left paralysed after being struck by 22 separate pieces of shrapnel determined never to live life as a victim; the police officer reunited for the first time with the little girl whose life she saved; the badly injured teenager who lost his best friend and who will now take her place and walk her mother down the aisle
This is a film about people and a city caught up in that terrible event who refuse to be defined by terror.
Narrator: Christopher Eccleston
