The Sinner premieres

on

The story of Cora, a young mother having troubles sleeping and generally ill at ease with the world around her. A day trip to the lake with husband Mason and son culminates in an act of shocking violence.
The task of determining what happened, and why, falls to a local detective, Harry Ambrose, who begins slowly unraveling threads that might add up to a larger story.
Additional hints come in the form of flashbacks to Cora’s childhood, further clouding whether she knew the victim or if he was merely an unlucky surrogate for someone who wronged her in the past.
