In the one-minute clip posted above, Hays, seen at three different ages, is still clearly haunted by a case from his past. “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,” he continues. The story will take place in the Ozarks, an area that spans four different states: Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
