Considering that the show is based on a novel, and said novel was not a novel to forget, we are lucky to enjoy a good plot. Through all seven episodes we follow the lives of these women. At the beginning of episode 1 we know that somebody died. But that’s it. We don’t know who, where and when. It’s as the episodes flow, that we learn things about each one of the characters, and that their lives are not as perfect as they seem to an outsider.

For some, the pace might seem a bit slow. As the story seems to not advance at some point, but please keep watching it, as it is indeed advancing, but maybe not at the speed that you were expecting too. Everything has a reason to be and a place to happen and in order to know the real truth you need to watch it until the end.

Final Thoughts

Beautiful cinematography and the amazing soundtrack blend everything together so well. I just binge-watched the entire mini series and I can only tell you that this is the show you’ve been waiting for.
