Temple tells the story of Daniel Milton (Strong), a talented surgeon whose world is turned upside down when his wife contracts a terminal illness. Yet Daniel refuses to accept the cards he’s been dealt. He partners with the obsessive, yet surprisingly resourceful, misfit Lee (Mays) to start a literal ‘underground’ clinic in the vast network of tunnels beneath Temple tube station in London. They’re soon joined by Anna (van Houten), a guilt-ridden medical researcher whose past is entangled with Daniel’s, and fugitive bank-robber Jamie (King Bakare). Daniel does his best to juggle this dysfunctional family as his moral boundaries as a husband, friend and doctor are challenged. Just how far will he go for love?
