This tragedy prompts him to move to the town of Kasselton, New Jersey, to start a new life. However, Mickey soon finds himself involved in the mysterious disappearance of a new student at his school, Ashley Kent. This leads him to uncover unthinkable secrets within their community. With the help of his friends, Spoon and the secretive Ema, Mickey sets out to uncover the dark realities hidden behind Kasselton’s quiet façade.

The series opens with an explosive scene that serves as a common thread throughout the story. Although our initial interest in the series was limited, we were pleasantly surprised to find that we gradually got carried away by its plot. From the very first episode, we begin to feel a certain affection for the main characters. A number of plots emerge, all cleverly interconnected. Even if we had not originally planned to continue watching the series, it is now quite clear that we will be tempted by the episodes to come. We can not stay without answers!
