Sophie is on a recovery journey after suffering a head injury that caused her to forget her issues. 

Even worse, Sophie remembers absolutely nothing about her past life. When she is told about when she tried to kill herself, Sophie wonders how she’d have done something like that.

As Sophie tries to pull the pieces together, with her husband James and friends’ assistance, she begins to question the truth and who she can lay her trust on. After she realizes an unanticipated love triangle, Sophie finds herself on a self-discovery voyage. 

The plot is quite classy, resembling murder mysteries where you keep doubting each character and believe they must be hiding something from Sophie. It makes everything hard for her to solve or remember the secret behind what caused her mind loss. 

If the plot doesn’t mention that someone tried to kill Sophie, we must find it ourselves!


Apple TV Plus’s official trailer for the series dives deep into the desperate issues that Sophie undergoes after recovering from a head injury resulting from jumping from a boat. Sophie is on a mission to find out what exactly transpired. 

The trailer also offers a clear peek into the kind of chronicles to expect from Surface. Its tension and suspense will keep you constantly yearning for what happens next. The visuals are simultaneously stunning and intense, which has recently become the order of the day for Apple TV Plus’ content.
