Based on real live events, The Long Walk Back tells the epic story of an international sporting star's catastrophic fall from grace.

England cricketing all-rounder Chris Lewis enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame and fortune in the 1990s.

Playing 85 Tests and One Day Internationals for England he seemed on the verge of greatness when he was named England's International Cricketer of The Year in 1994.

Within months of his cricketing career ending, however, his life lay in ruins when he was sentenced to 13 years in prison for smuggling cocaine into the UK.

Beginning with his arrest at Gatwick Airport in 2008 and an attempted suicide on his first night in custody, The Long Walk Back charts the extraordinary journey that took Lewis from the brink of despair to a profound moral awakening.
