Storyline

Laura is a smart and dedicated teacher, not long out of a relationship and unsure about getting back on the dating scene. Andrew is a renowned surgeon whose son is a pupil at Laura's school. An initial attraction leads to a date, but neither fully realizes the far-reaching consequences that their meeting will have on each other or their families. Truth and consequences go hand in hand in the tense and gripping thriller that examines both sides of a relationship and both sides of the truth. Are there really two sides to every story?

Don't believe the bad reviews.
5 October 2017 | by demetgn-1See all my reviews

I can not understand all the bad reviews, I have enjoyed all four episodes very much. The story is good, the twists are unexpected and good, the acting is good, the cinematography is good..What else do people want? Nudity?graphic violence? sex scenes? No, there is none, but there are clever twists,interesting characters,and a story that unfolds revealing things that make you say Wow that was good!
