Brief synopsis

Im Zentrum der ersten deutschen Produktion des weltweit führenden Streamingdienstes Netflix stehen vier Familien in einer deutschen Kleinstadt. Als zwei Kinder auf mysteriöse Weise verschwinden, wird die vermeintlich heile Welt dieser Familien aus den Fugen gerissen und ein Blick hinter die Fassaden offenbart die dunklen Geheimnisse aller Beteiligten. Im Verlauf der zehn einstündigen Folgen bekommt die Tragweite der Ereignisse eine neue Dimension als die Ermittlungen zurück ins Jahr 1986 führen und die Schicksale der vier Familien auf tragische Weise verknüpft werden.
