TV show description:
This crime drama revolves around Carrie Wells (Poppy Montgomery), a woman who has a (nearly) perfect memory. She can recall every place, day, and conversation that she's ever had. Unfortunately, she can't let go of the ones she'd rather forget, including the murder of her sister many years earlier.

Years earlier, Carrie worked for the Syracuse Police Department »
