Brimstone and Treacle

Brimstone and Treacle is a 1976 television play by Dennis Potter. Untransmitted until 1987, the play was made into a film (released in 1982) co-starring Sting.

The play features a middle-aged middle-class couple living in a North London suburb whose life has been catastrophically affected by a hit-and-run accident which has left their beautiful undergraduate daughter in a coma, but their existence is dramatically changed by the arrival of a mysterious young stranger.
