Six-year-old Sam Geraghty is taken from his school. Much to the relief of his parents Anna and Joe, Sam is found unharmed hours later and the police arrest ex-schoolteacher, Simon Heywood. But this is far from an open and shut case as it turns out that Simon is Anna's ex-lover, and his neighbour and possible accomplice Angela has an intriguing connection to Joe. Soon Simon's psychiatrist and ally Dr Alex Klima, his lawyer Gina, and even Joe's best mate Mitch get pulled into the vortex where relationships become entangled and moral dilemmas abound about who really is at fault. And it's not a matter of who took Sam, but a question of why. Told from the shifting perspectives of seven characters, this psychological mystery explores the complex emotional terrain of past and present relationships and the risks people will go to in the name of love.

User Reviews

Really nice organized and novel mini series
3 September 2019 | by aliciazhang-18441See all my reviews

Finished the series in one day. Originally attracted by Hugo Weaving's stunning performance then the organization of the series really gets me. Loved it a lot. I'd give 10/10 if the ending could be better. Theatrically it is surprising, yet not so bright for characters' intentions.
