Pagford is a seemingly idyllic English village with a cobbled market square and ancient abbey. Behind the pretty façade, however, is a town at war: rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils. A miniseries adaptation of J.K. Rowling's novel.

Pegford town located in England became the center of events of the series. The primitive city does not raise any suspicions. The life of its inhabitants was calm and quiet. People have plunged into everyday routine and not worry about their future, because they are sure that it will be such as modern times. However, the unpleasant incident which happened with Barry Feyrbrazer one of the members of the local council made people doubt in their future. Barry is passed away and now his place should take another worthy candidate. But it soon becomes clear that do it so will not be easy.

They will begin to change their views in relation to many people which all the time hiding their true faces behind the masks.
