According to Netflix, from February 27 to April 3, 2022, the TV series was watched in total over 227 million hours. Also, do not forget that the TV show is based on the novel of the same name, so the season 2 is unlikely to be released.
Young Andy worked in the rescue service, taking calls from the townspeople. She was so bored talking to the callers that the next time the same woman complained about raccoons near her house, Andy could hardly keep up the conversation.
On the day of her 30th birthday, the girl finishes her shift and goes with her mother to the nearest cafe. A quarrel flares up between them, in which Laura asks her daughter to take life more seriously. In the end, Andy still does not want to live separately, explaining this by the fact that she does not want to pay for a rented apartment. At this moment, their acquaintances approach them, and from behind the table they see a man walking towards them. He takes out a gun and…
The shot is aimed at the women approaching Andy and Laura. In a fit of panic, the mother throws herself on the floor and covers her daughter, protecting her from a possible bullet. But the man had already set his sights on Andy, who had arrived at the cafe in a police uniform. Forcing her to take any action, he bumps into Laura. In hand-to-hand combat, a woman inflicts a mortal blow on him.
Shocked by what she saw, Andy tries to help Laura stop the bleeding, but she only speaks incoherently. An ambulance arrives and takes her to the hospital, from where Laura goes home the same day. She asks Andy to leave immediately and start living her life. Believing that her mother is out of her mind, the girl is looking for ways to stay.
At night, another attack is made on the mother, which they successfully repel together with her daughter. After forcing Andy to leave immediately, Laura is left alone. Realizing that she has to deal with what is happening herself, Andy tries to penetrate into the mother’s past. But the more she learns, the more questions arise in her head. Who is hunting for her, and what did her mother’s incoherent words mean after the incident in the cafe?..
