Fool Me Once synopsis

Fool Me Once follows Maya, an ex-soldier who witnesses her husband being murdered. He is dead in front of her. She sees it with her own eyes.

Of course, in her grief, she starts to see him everywhere. These are just hallucinations. At least, that’s what she thinks they are. What happens when they’re not hallucinations? What happens when she sees her husband on her nanny cam one day? How can a dead man be on a camera that was bought after his death?

Maya needs to figure it all out. She heads on a journey of answers while everyone around her thinks that she’s going crazy in her grief. Does her mother-in-law hold the key to all the answers? Is her husband still alive, and if he is, why did he fake his death?

Meanwhile, the cops work on finding out who killed Maya’s husband. What happens when they realize that maybe Maya is onto something?

Fool Me Once is now available to stream on Netflix.
