The official synopsis reads: “Following the story of Detective Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs) who survives a serious car accident only to find he is living in two parallel worlds; in one world, his wife, Hannah, survives the crash but his son dies and in the other world his son, Rex, is alive and grieving over the death of his mother.

“Michael navigates between these two worlds, each populated with its own psychiatrist, police partner and of course, murder cases. Michael quickly discovers that his dual existence is actually a powerful tool and he begins to solve impossible cases by using his two realities to gain unique perspectives and link clues that cross over from world to world.”
