The series focuses on forensic psychiatrist Dr Emma Robertson and her dangerous relationship with her patient Connie Mortensen, a woman accused of a terrible crime she has no memory of ever committing.

It is up to Emma to decide whether Connie can stand trial for her sins.

Dr Robertson is tasked with investigating the truth surrounding Connie’s relationship with her best friend, Ness — a relationship that somehow caused Connie to attempt to murder a loved one.

The twisted tale depicts Connie as a masterful manipulator, unearthing Emma's past traumas and pains.
