“What does where the leaves fall purple mean?”
Ben Miller has a problem. He’s in his final year of university with nothing to show for it. His true crime podcast only has a handful of listeners and he’s starting to lose hope. His only true supporter is his best friend (and not-so secret crush) Janie, a drama student with aspirations of becoming an actress.
When Ben’s gets it into his head that he needs an exclusive story to boost listenership, Ben asks Janie if she will become a “missing person” so he can document finding her on the podcast. Little does Ben know, his one act of deception will set off a dangerous chain reaction and spin a story that Ben isn’t sure he’s ready to tell.

Love this show so much
I just finished this show and now I’m having a hard time getting into another one because I was so immersed in this world. Very well done! Highly recommend
The show excels in every metric: cast, production, writing, you name it. This has every marking of a huge HIT.
A mystery that keeps you guessing
I came into the show knowing that it's about a fake disappearance gone wrong, but that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the mystery on the table. New information is revealed in ways that don't feel cheap or contrived, and even when the characters annoy me it's because they are believably young adults trying to figure out life in college. Absolutely recommend for a great whodunnit that will keep you engaged and guessing.
