Storyline

Inspired by true events, "I Am the Night" tells the gripping story of Fauna Hodel (India Eisley), a teenage girl who is given away at birth, and grows up outside of Reno, Nevada. Fauna lives more-or-less comfortably with the mysteries of her origin, until one day she makes a discovery that leads her to question everything. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets of her past, she meets a ruined reporter (Chris Pine), haunted by the case that undid him. Together they follow a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Los Angeles gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel (Jefferson Mays), a man involved in some of Hollywood's darkest debauchery, and possibly, its most infamous unsolved crime. Written by TNT

No roots
28 January 2019 | by VivkonSee all my reviews

This is a fascinating story of revealation: the mystery of an adoption centered on one girl. The TV series is rife with striking elements of romance and detective, chicanery. Acting is enjoyable and the storyline is quite promising. It looks like knowing the roots can be dangerous for truth-seekers, but fascinating for show viewers.
