Shannan's mum, Mari (played by Amy Ryan) is determined to find her daughter at all costs and, convinced the police aren't taking the case seriously because Mari was a sex worker, she begins retracing her daughter's last known steps.

Seeking justice for Shannan, as well as juggling two jobs and taking care of her youngest daughter, who suffers with mental illness, Mari will stop at nothing to find the truth.

It's an important and powerful watch, exploring the attitudes of officers at the time, towards victims within the sex industry.

In the trailer, Amy Ryan can be heard saying: "No-one is talking about our girls. And when they do it's prostitute, hooker, never mother, daughter.

"And it's our job to make sure these girls are not forgotten. I've been dismissed and ignored, but one thing I won't be is silenced".

Lost Girls is available to stream on Netflix from today.
