This story follows real life events as two female detectives (Toni Collette and Merritt Wever) work together to find a rapist who has left behind a string of crime scenes. This show is perfect for national women’s month because it portrays the strength of women, of all different ages, as they recover from extreme trauma and the power women have to excel in a man driven police force. I highly recommend this show! However, this show contains intense and explicit scenes.
