The main characters of the famous crime anthology’s new season are Arkansas policemen Wayne Hays (Mahershala Ali) and Roland West (Stephen Dorff). They are immersed in the investigation of the terrible children’s disappearance. The case turns out to be quite confusing, and the plot of this season is stretched over three time periods: 1980, when the children disappeared, 1990, when the case was reopened, and 2015, when two elderly protagonists were interviewed for the documentary.
