The trailer shows his character, Arkansas state police detective Wayne Hays, at three different ages, clearly haunted by a case. “Before you ever knew me, I wasn’t scared much. That wasn’t a fear for me. Things I’ve seen, things I know, wouldn’t do anything but cause harm. My whole brain’s a bunch of missing pieces,” he says in the voiceover for the trailer.
“My job…. there’s no certainty. This peace… is more haunting than anything. I want to know the whole story.”
