Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë face a bleak future, with their father half-blind and troubled brother Branwell in decline. As their situation worsens, Charlotte sees that writing could offer a way out. This is the dramatisation of the sisters' lives as they published their first novels and their extraordinary battle for recognition. To Walk Invisible was written and directed by Sally Wainwright (Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax) and stars Finn Atkins, Charlie Murphy, Chloe Pirrie, Adam Nagaitis and Jonathan Pryce.
