Originally broadcast in Ireland, Clean Sweep focuses on Shelly Mohan, the typical wife and mother. She fills her days handling her three kids, cooking, cleaning, shopping etc. She’s happy with her life until someone from her past shows up. Before she knows it, Shelly has killed someone.

Here’s a look at the official synopsis for the series.

"Shelly Mohan is super mom. Her secret power? Multitasking. She juggles the complex lives and schedules of three kids, ages 10, 11 and 15. Her days are filled with cooking and cleaning, shopping and chauffeuring and somehow manages to have a home-cooked meal on the table by the time her husband Jason, a Galway Garda detective, arrives home every night. It’s chaotic and hectic and mostly thankless but it is a life Shelly is happy with. But when a dark secret emerges from her past, she makes a fatal choice to prevent the truth from surfacing."
