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?

Why all the bad reviews?
19 October 2017 | by julesgottliebSee all my reviews

I actually enjoyed this series very much! Watched it in two days run and was very entertained the whole way through. The characters are well rounded, the atmosphere is spooky and (I think) believable. They actors were splendid and I think the plot - and the twists, were all very well written. Also a great cinematography. Yes, maybe some of the things or decisions seem 'out there' (have you ever watched a classic horror), but come on, this is a show - reality may not be THAT entertaining nor dramatic, but this is not reality. I came to see a thrilling, exciting series and I got exactly that. And I would gladly watch season 2. Pleased.
