Saint X is a gripping psychological drama that explores the ripple effects of a young woman's mysterious death during an idyllic Caribbean vacation. When 18-year-old Emily Diess goes missing on the final night of her family's trip to an exclusive island resort, the case is initially deemed an accidental drowning. Her grieving sister Leigh teams up with a local cab driver named Clive to investigate what really happened on that fateful evening. As they dig deeper into Emily's final hours, sinister secrets about the resort begin to surface.

Leigh is haunted by the memory of her beloved sister and becomes obsessed with getting justice for Emily's death. She suspects there is more to the story than local authorities claim. Back home in Albany, Emily and Leigh's mother tries to keep it together for the sake of her surviving daughter while internally wrestling with overwhelming grief and bitterness. The family realizes nothing will ever be the same as long-buried emotions and painful truths come to light.

Told through flashbacks and current-day revelations, Saint X explores privilege, race, family dysfunction and the corroding power of secrets. The mystery unfolds at a measured pace, building tension as pieces of the puzzle start to connect. Striking cinematography captures the island's stunning natural beauty juxtaposed with a creeping unease that lurks below the postcard-perfect surface.

As Leigh retraces her sister's final steps, she discovers unsettling details about the other guests at the resort, including an eccentric millionaire and his entourage. Local employees seem oddly reluctant to share information, suggesting a larger cover-up may be at play. Leigh and Clive's amateur investigation rattles the very foundations of the exclusive haven, threatening to expose harsh realities the resort would prefer remain hidden.

The mystery weaves an intricate web of misdirection, half-truths and conflicting accounts of what transpired on that fateful night. Just when clues point one way, new evidence redirects the search. Through all the dead ends and red herrings, Leigh remains determined to honor Emily's memory by revealing the truth no matter the cost. But will finding answers provide the closure Leigh seeks or only deepen her wounds?

Saint X is a slow-burning thriller that explores the ripple effects of privileged entitlement, the corrosive nature of secrets and the quest for elusive closure. Emily's fate highlights difficult questions of race, bias and power dynamics in an idyllic paradise. Leigh's tireless pursuit of the truth honors her sister's memory while threatening to unravel her own life in the process. Saint X builds hypnotic suspense, driven by an aching emotional core.

Saint X is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (8 episodes). The series first aired on April 26, 2023.
