    Bec and Ritchie's father was shot dead in an act of self-sacrifice when they were children. A generation later Ritchie, a producer of reality TV shows, wants to make a film with their father's killer, and Bec, a malaria researcher, is looking for a set of rules to live by. When Bec rejects marriage…

    Bec and Ritchie's father was shot dead in an act of self-sacrifice when they were children. A generation later Ritchie, a producer of reality TV shows, wants to make a film with their father's killer, and Bec, a malaria researcher, is looking for a set of rules to live by. When Bec rejects marriage to a powerful newspaper editor in favour of starting a family with the unworldly biochemist Alex, brother and sister's sense of right and wrong is put to the harshest test. The Heart Broke In is an old-fashioned story of modern times, an ambitious family drama of love, death and money in the era of gene therapy and Internet exposés. It asks the question: where, in our half-Darwinian, half-religious age, does conscience reside?
