Written by Irish pla ywright Mark O'Rowe, T emple is the story of Daniel Milton (Mark Strong – Kingsman), a talented surgeon whose world is turned upside-down when his wife develops a life-threatening illness.
When conventional options for treatment run out, Daniel refuses to accept the prognosis and give up. Instead, he partners with an obsessive yet surprisingly resourceful misfit - and together they set up an underground clinic in the vast network of abandoned tunnels beneath Temple tube station in London.
They are soon joined by Anna (Carice Van Houten – Game of Thrones), a guilt-ridden medical researcher whose past is entangled with Daniel's, and Jamie ( Tobi King Bakare), a young fugitive bank-robber.
Daniel does his best to juggle this dysfunctional family as his moral boundaries between being a husband, friend and doctor are challenged. But it soon becomes apparent that it may be him and his desperate actions that finally bring everything crashing down. Just how far will Daniel go to save his dying wife?
