Season 01, Episode 05 – “Episode 5”
The waiting is finally over for the distraught Morel family when Lea’s body is found in Miribel lake. As they prepare for the funeral, Julien becomes obsessed with identifying everybody who attended her birthday party on the day she went missing, and manages to identify someone who looks out of place in the club.
Set in Lyon, the show traces the increasing trauma of the Morel family who fall apart when their 17-year-old daughter fails to return home from a night out. As the hours pass and the police investigation builds, The Disappearance explores every parent’s worst nightmare. There are similarities to Broadchurch in that the lead detective has a complicated backstory while the family members and friends each appear to be hiding something.
