Returning home to learn her husband has remarried and her son is being raised by another woman, she soon finds herself implicated in a new series of murders.
The drama series, which was originally commissioned for Sony’s international channel brand AXN, was created by Gaia Violo and Matthew Cirulnick and is based on a pilot script originally written by Violo. It is produced by Masha Productions and distributed by Sony Pictures Television in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks and stars Stana Katic, Patrick Heusinger, Angel Bonanni, Cara Theobold, Neil Jackson, Paul Freeman and Patrick McAuley.
In season two, after tracking down and killing her abductor, Emily struggles to define her new normal as a mother and a survivor of six years of physical and mental torture. Even while she rebuilds her relationship with her son, Emily still cannot shake the darkness of her past. She enlists Boston police detective Tommy Gibbs (Angel Bonanni, False Flag) in a secret investigation of her mysterious history. When the case turns deadly, she risks everything to uncover the truth and protect her family.
