Plot Synopsis

TABULA RASA is a one-hour psychological thriller about Mie D'Haeze, a young woman who is locked up in a secure psychiatric hospital with severe retrograde amnesia after being in a car accident. Mie is visited by Detective Inspector Wolkers who claims she was the last person seen with a man named Thomas Spectre before he vanished. As a witness and prime suspect, she appears to be the sole key in this mysterious disappearance. Mie can't be released from the hospital until Thomas is found. In order to solve the puzzle and find Thomas, Mie must reconstruct her lost memories and find her way back through the dark labyrinth of her recent past. The more she remembers, the more she starts to mistrust not only the people around her, but also...herself. Led by the unreliable narrator Mie, viewers know as much -- or as little -- as she does, as they follow her on a journey into the black holes of her mind.

Two storylines are woven together in flashbacks. The present storyline starts with the winter weeks that Mie spends in the psychiatric hospital, where visits from DI Wolkers and her family members start triggering her memories. The past storyline recounts Mie's memories in chronological order, starting in autumn with the move to her grandparents' house in the forest, and ending with the disappearance of Thomas Spectre, just before her committal to the psychiatric hospital.

TABULA RASA had its U.S. premiere on Thursday, March 15, 2018, as Netflix released the entire nine-episode series.
