Written and directed by BAFTA winning Dominic Savage, I Am is an anthology drama series devised in collaboration with actors Samantha Morton, Vicky McClure and Gemma Chan, each of whom has close personal connection to the story they are involved in. The films have a level of authenticity and realism rarely seen on television. Kirsty (Samantha Morton) is a woman fighting to keep her family stable in a precarious world. She tries to desperately stave off disaster through force of will, until her world unravels around her and she is forced to make the ultimate sacrifice for her children. Nicola (Vicky McClure) is a woman searching for a romantic ideal of perfect relationship. Nicola is so caught up in seeking her dream that she fails to notice her dark and complicated reality - or to ask herself, what does she actually want? What is really valuable in a relationship? Hannah (Gemma Chan) is a lawyer in her 30's living an ordinary life but searching for a greater purpose. She appears to 'have it all', but in the face of mounting pressure from friends and family to settle down and start a family, Hannah has to decide whether there's more to life than that. Starring: Samantha Morton (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The Last Panthers), Vicky McClure (Line of Duty, This is England), Gemma Chan (Crazy Rich Asians, Humans), Paul Kaye (Game of Thrones), Perry Fitzgerald, Arinze Kene. Writer and Director: Dominic Savage.
