The abduction of a baby from a small coastal town in Australia is the catalyst for a journey into the disintegrating psychology of a young woman, Joanna, (Jenna Coleman) as she and her partner, Alistair, (Ewan Leslie) deal with an unthinkable tragedy under both the white light of public scrutiny and in their private lives. The Cry is a layered, taut, psychological thriller that will grip you from the start and keep you guessing along the way.
The Cry Ep. 1
Joanna is already struggling with being a first-time mom and soon she finds herself at the center of an unthinkable tragedy, as her baby goes missing.
The Cry Ep. 2
The search leads to the arrest of Alistair’s ex-wife but we soon discover not everything is as it seems. Are Joanna and Alistair hiding something?
The Cry Ep. 3
The truth of Noah’s disappearance is revealed, as his parents’ relationship unravels. Joanna realizes she must play Alistair at his own game.
Like most great stories, this one teaches us about ourselves just as Joanna uncovers vital insights into her own failings through the tragic loss of her son. The narrative unpeels subtly and gradually to make us aware of the treacherous mechanisms we sometimes adopt in order to hide from the truth.
SO good. Really enjoyed it.
Excellent show! Wish it was longer, but very well done.
Sick and twisted phycological plot. Perfect! Wish there was more to watch.
