Grace Sachs is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. She's a successful therapist, has a devoted husband and young son who attends an elite private school in New York City. Overnight a chasm opens in her life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only a chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself. Written by Fahad Riaz

Did You Know?


Matilda de Angelis said that, unlike Game of Thrones (2011) or True Blood (2008), her nudity in this series was deployed with intention. Her character always needs to be at the center of attention and sometimes nudity is just a way to make that happen faster and more easily. She said "Nudity, in this case, is really functional to the story. It's not for free, it's not for granted, it's not unnecessary. It's really important to make Grace (Nicole Kidman) feel uncomfortable and the spectator too. You always have to wonder what she will do next. She's really, really unpredictable and she's really mysterious and her being naked is a statement." See more »

User Reviews

1st episode will make me come back for 5 more
27 October 2020 | by debilynnnSee all my reviews

Kidman, Grant, Sutherland 1st episode was 10 stars, Intriguing and suspenseful, it's great to see actors you love as they get older, as oneself, still acting. I'll definitely watch the rest of the miniseries.
