Her big break comes when she receives a tip revealing that the mayor of Little Sky has disappeared, so she travels to that remote town with no idea that she is going to find something much darker and more complicated than it seemed at first glance. view. Samara Weaving (‘Wedding Night’) is the actress chosen to give life to the protagonist of this series created by Rightor Doyle (‘Bonding’).

Of course, as long as they are satisfied with the experience, there are no surprises if they use it again in other specific cases.
