My Policeman is based on the Bethan Roberts novel of the same name. The film follows Tom (Styles), a closeted gay policeman living in 1950s Britain when homosexuality was illegal.

The trailer shows Tom openly court and marry Marion (Emma Corrin), a schoolteacher, while having a secret love affair with Patrick (Dawson), a museum curator.

Linus Roache, Gina McKee and Rupert Everett play older versions of Tom, Marion and Patrick in the 1990s.

"A beautifully crafted story of forbidden love and changing social conventions, My Policeman follows three young people -- policeman Tom (Styles), teacher Marion (Corrin) and museum curator Patrick (Dawson) as they embark on an emotional journey in 1950s Britain," an official description reads.
