As a montage shows Arjun investigating the murky case, the text on the screen calls the show a story of lies, secrets, and redemption. The teaser closes with Arjun--filmed from the back--looking at a map of London.
According to the show's official synopsis, it follows homicide detective Om Singh as he takes on a missing person’s case in a politically divided London city. Battling his own personal demons, Om is forced to take on the case of media mogul Amar Roy’s (Purab) missing daughter.
