The show is about the rise of popularity of Charles Manson set two years before the Tate-LaBianca murders. It stars David Duchovny as Sam Hodiak, a decorated World War II veteran and homicide detective who lives in a world that has turned upside down.

The show begins with Sam receiving a phone call from an old girlfriend asking for his help in finding her 16-year-old daughter, Emma (Emma Dumont), who has disappeared within a group of hippies.

He says that the return of Emma is the moist important thing, but he is really concerned how his reputation will look if this story makes it on the news.
