Written by Rowan Joffe and starring Tim Roth, Tin Star series two picks up at the moment series one left off, but this time things are different. If series one was about vengeance, series two is about the opposite: it’s a story of forgiveness. Having seemingly destroyed everything he loves, Jack has to win Angela and Anna back. In order to make amends for his actions and rebuild his family, he must save another from destruction.
This second trip to the stunning Canadian Rockies introduces us to the God-fearing Nickel family, members of the Ammonite community of Prairie Field. This group is a fictional, strict religious sect, loosely based on the Amish and Hutterites. They are led by a council of elders and pastor Johan Nickel. Anna, hardened and broken by the death of her brother and Whitey, finds peace and safety in the Ammonite community and the Nickel home. Like the Worths in series one, the Nickels have recently found sanctuary in Canada. Or they thought they had, until their past tracks them down.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Bradshaw, trying to protect her freedom and keep the truth of Gagnon’s killing a secret, is driven to the brink as her life becomes increasingly entwined with the Worths.
Only Jack can take on the threats posed to his family and finally reunite them. But Jack comes at a price. Jack might be able to save the Nickels and keep Elizabeth at bay – but in doing so will he endanger those he loves most?
