This twisty new crime series—based on J.P. Pomare’s book—tells two parallel storylines: When a young girl is abducted, cult survivor Freya is forced to reckon with the traumas of her past. At the same time, we watch as a cult leader perpetrates horrendous crimes. As you can probably guess, their stories eventually collide in surprising, and disturbing, ways. (Hulu)
