However, a few go unnoticed despite being critically acclaimed, and one such series is the Netflix Original TV show, Unbelievable. That's the OTTplay Lost and Found for today.
The series stars Kaitlyn Dever as Marie Adler, a young woman charged with lying about being raped. She soon finds herself ostracised by her friends and society after the systems in place designed to protect her become her worst nightmare. The narrative emphasizes on how the authorities were callous and incentive in how they dealt with her allegations. It isn’t until the investigation is taken over by Toni Collette's Det. Grace Rasmussen and Merritt Wever's Det. Karen Duvall that Marie Adler feels hopeful that her reputation could be restored.
