At the center of the series is the Hawthorne family, a prominent Boston clan made up of siblings Cam, Tessa, Alison, and Garrett, and their parents, Madeline and Mitchell Hawthorne. The Hawthornes are a glamorous family, with a sprawling mansion, successful businesses, and a reputation for philanthropy and social activism. But beneath the surface, they are a family full of secrets and lies.

When a grisly murder takes place in their city, the Hawthornes quickly become entangled in the investigation. They soon learn that the victim was connected to their family in a way that they never could have imagined, and that their own past may hold the key to solving the crime. As the investigation heats up, tensions rise between the family members, each of whom has their own dark secrets and motives.

Antony Starr plays Garrett Hawthorne, a black sheep of the family who spent years in prison for a crime he didn't commit. Justin Chatwin plays Cam Hawthorne, a struggling journalist who is desperate to uncover the truth about his family's past.

The rest of the Hawthorne family includes Megan Ketch as Tessa, Alison's younger sister who is struggling with addiction and a failing marriage, Elliot Knight as Brady Ross, Tessa's husband who has a mysterious past, Stephanie Leonidas as Sophie Hawthorne, Mitchell Hawthorne's illegitimate daughter who turns up unexpectedly, and Gabriel Bateman as Jack Hawthorne, Cam and Tessa's precocious young nephew.

The show also features several notable guest stars, including Virginia Madsen as Madeline Hawthorne, the matriarch of the family, who is hiding her own secrets, and Jamey Sheridan as Mitchell Hawthorne, the patriarch who is stricken with guilt over his family's past.

As the investigation unfolds, the Hawthornes must confront their own demons and face the consequences of their actions. The show is full of twists and turns, with each episode revealing more about the family's past and the murder that ties them all together. The tension between the family members is palpable, and the performances from the cast are top-notch.
