As the lies and betrayal come to light, she finds herself behaving in ways she could never have imagined. Determined to find out the truth, she thrusts herself into an all-consuming investigation only to reveal a deceitful pack of secrets that slowly unravel her life and the lives of those around her.
The series, which garnered rave reviews from both audiences and critics, premiered last October in the UK as the highest rated new drama of 2015 with an average of 8.2 million total viewers.

Named Bentonville's 2015 Grand Jury Film Festival Award Winner, Jack of The Red Hearts is the redemption story of streetwise teen, Jack (AnnaSophia Robb), who is on the run from her probation officer. Needing to lay low and earn money so she can rescue her younger sister from foster care, Jack cons her way into a suburban home as the live-in helper for the family's autistic daughter, Glory (Sophia Anne Caruso). Much to her surprise, Jack has a unique ability to connect with the nonverbal little girl. As she positively impacts Glory, the family begins to affect Jack, particularly Kay (Famke Janssen), Glory's overwhelmed and desperate mother who is thrilled with daughter's progress with Jack. But as the law catches up, the truth comes out, and Jack is forced to make a choice---to save herself, or help someone else.
