    This limited series (only four episodes total) is a Scottish-Australian production, and is quite good! It's twisty...somewhat dark, yet captivating...a story about a couple who deals with an unfathomable family tragedy, while in the midst of traveling to Australia to visit family. They come under the public eye and face persistent scrutiny, as they start falling into a psychological pit of despair.

    The performances are all so convincing, gut-wrenching, and so much is packed into four episodes! Jenna Coleman is spectacular as ''Joanna'' the main character. You may find yourself watching it twice, after you put all of the moving parts together, the first time.

    Nothing is what it seems, though.

    I watched that a while ago, but can't remember the details of the plot. From memory, it was well written and acted.

    Yea, I think it first aired back in 2018. I hadn’t seen it advertised until recently on the Sundance network, though. (First aired on BBC)

    **Warning - I give away more of the plot in this spoiler so view at your own risk if you haven’t yet watched this series but plan to.

    @ James:

    As a refresher, a couple deals with the disappearance of their baby but as the plot unfolds, it’s revealed that they accidentally killed their baby and are caught up in how to continue on with the lie that he was kidnapped. That took me by surprise, I had no inkling that they were responsible.
