Halle Jacobs has just landed her dream job as an investigative reporter for an up-and-coming TV production company. She is immediately thrust into an investigation about an unusually high number of childhood cancer cases on an East London housing estate.

Ably assisted by her researcher Todd, she is confronted by a community that, rather than pulling together under these distressing circumstances, is torn apart by intolerance and racism.

Halle progresses the investigation, identifying two family firms that were involved in the construction of the housing estate back in the 80s. Both firms are run by strong patriarchal figureheads. As she delves deeper into the two families, Halle comes across a mother in prison for murder, a set of ruthless business men, a suspicious money trail and a daughter determined to find out what is going on between the two firms.

Will Halle crack this case and expose The Sins of the Father?
