The show’s leading roles are portrayed by Samantha Morton, known for her role in “Fantastic Beasts,” and Ruby Stokes, recognized for her appearances in “Bridgerton” and “Lockwood & Co.” They depict a mother and daughter duo seeking a fresh start in the insular British village of Chapel Croft. However, this peculiar community harbors its own dark secrets, and unraveling the truth about its bloody history proves to be perilous.

Ruby Stokes, who plays the role of Flo, Jack’s 15-year-old daughter, adds, “It was a pleasure working with such a talented and dedicated cast and crew. A personal highlight was sharing the screen with Sam, whom I greatly admire.”
