Synopsis


Millions of people cycle to work every day.


And every week, some of them don't make it home.


One Tuesday morning, Isabelle packs her lunch box into her pannier, kisses her young daughter goodbye and sets off on her bike through Hackney.


What happens along the way is at once shocking, inconceivable and terrifyingly ordinary.
