Unconditional Love is a one-off British television crime drama that was broadcast on 20 January 2003. Written by Chris Lang, the production starred Robson Green, Joe Absolom, Sarah Parish and Timothy Krause, and follows the story of a couple whose four-year-old son is kidnapped, and his captor demands that they commit a series of crimes in order to secure his safe return.[1] The drama was directed by Ferdinand Fairfax and produced by Mark Pybus.[2]


Pete (Robson Green) & Lydia Gray (Sarah Parish) are out celebrating their son Max (Timothy Krause)'s fourth birthday, when they become involved in one of every parent's worst nightmares; as Max is snatched by embittered Benjamin Cain (Joe Absolom), his half-brother, who since his birth in 1982, has endured various degrees of abuse, perversion, abandonment, addiction and betrayal. He now has concocted a plan to gain revenge on his abusers and his so-called loving birth parent, who gave him up for adoption, leaving him to the mercy of those who exploited the system, just so they could abuse their positions of power and indulge in their perverted pleasures of pedophilia.
