How well does anyone know their parents?

This question is one of many at the heart of Netflix's upcoming drama series, Pieces of Her. Based on Karin Slaughter's New York Times bestselling novel of the same name, the thriller is set in a sleepy Georgia town, where a random act of violence sets off an unexpected chain of events for 30-year-old Andy Oliver (Bella Heathcote) and her mother Laura (Toni Collette). Desperate for answers, Andy embarks on a dangerous journey across America, drawing her towards the dark, hidden heart of her family.

In a first look at the series, below, we're introduced to Andy and Laura, the violent incident that sets the plot in motion, and the action-packed journey that follows.
