After seeing his own body hanging from the mast of his sailboat “Beau Séjour,” Maurice wakes up on the beach to discover that nobody can see or hear him. Seven years after disappearing on his family, why would he come back to kill himself?
Authorities find a video of Maurice confessing to what happened on the boat, but it raises more questions than answers. When Maurice discovers that family friend and local officer Vinnie can see him, he asks him for help.
As Maurice comes face to face with more “seers,” they realize they’ve all mysteriously received the same photograph of a family event from the past. After speaking with the medical examiner, Vinnie is convinced something is not right.
Every family member seems to be hiding something. Alice is getting strange calls, Esther has flashbacks of a traumatic incident in the Navy, Bea helps Tille cover up a drunken mistake, and Vinnie discovers a clue that leads to Esther’s son, Simon.
