Midnight Man is a fast moving thriller that tells a timely story of a terrifying conspiracy reaching the highest echelons of power.
James Nesbitt plays disgraced journalist Max Raban. He is reduced to raking though bins for celebrity stories, a thankless task that suits him because of his phobia of daylight. His condition has already estranged him from his wife and daughter and he’s desperate for a real story and his old life back. When he discovers the murder of two Iranian cousins, Max starts to suspect that there is a death squad at work, targeting pro-Islamists and backed by an organisation bent on waging perpetual war. Is Max an investigative journalist at last or is the conspiracy theorist in him clouding his better judgement?
