Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Acclaimed New Zealand director Jane Campion re-teams with her Piano lead, Holly Hunter, for this ambitious seven-part television miniseries, with thematic echoes of David Lynch's Twin Peaks. The saga opens on a tragic note: in a beautiful but isolated mountain town, Tui Mitcham, an expectant 12-year-old girl, inexplicably walks into a freezing lake and vanishes. A professional detective from the said town, Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss) , returns home and begins to tap into the community's evil undercurrents. As she inches ever closer to determining Tui's whereabouts, so Robin also comes face to face with dark secrets from her own past, including men she abandoned, who now seem to prevent her from solving the central mystery. In addition to directing, Campion also authored the original screenplay.
