Fin’s reality is crumbling.
Abandoned by her husband, raising her nine-year-old daughter on her own, Fin’s got some major issues going on. With her L.A. home sweltering, experiencing strange hallucinations, now her life has become a living nightmare. Is it stress, psychosis, trauma … something else?
The answers may lie in Fin’s mother’s cold-case disappearance. An actress once on the rise, she vanished in 1979 with very few clues.
