This is a continuation of the criminal anthology about bad guys. If the first season of Dirty John told us a story about a nice rich woman Debra, who fell victim to a crook, now we have a real family drama.

Betty (Amanda Peet) and Dan (Christian Slater) are a married couple living in California. However, everything changes when Dan is transferred to a new job in San Diego. The husband meets a woman there, it leads to the most tragic consequences, and the family drama becomes a crime thriller.
