Set in high-end San Francisco, the story finds Mbatha-Raw as Sophie, a woman who has suffered a traumatic head injury that has left her with extreme memory loss, believed to be a result of a suicide attempt.

Through twists and turns and an unexpected love triangle, the thriller asks: What if you woke up one day and didn’t know your own secrets?
Created by Victoria West, who previously worked on shows including High Fidelity and Dexter: New Blood, the series has I May Destroy You‘s Sam Miller directing. The cast also includes Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Stephan James, Ari Graynor, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, François Arnaud and Millie Brady.
