The highly anticipated and critically-acclaimed debut of SundanceTV’s limited series, “Top of the Lake: China Girl” airs as part of a three-night special event starting Sunday, September 10 and continues Monday, September 11 and Tuesday, September 12 at 9p/8c each evening. SundanceTV presents two parts of the six-part story back-to-back each night with an encore presentation immediately following.
“Top of the Lake: China Girl” stars Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”, “Mad Men”) Gwendoline Christie (“Game of Thrones”, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Academy Award® and Golden Globe® winner Nicole Kidman (“Big Little Lies”). Rounding out the cast are David Dencik (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures, Jonathan Strange And Mr. Norrell) and Ewen Leslie (The Daughter).
In “Top of the Lake: China Girl” we see Detective Robin Griffin (Moss) recently returned to Sydney and trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realizes “China Girl” didn’t die alone. Robin looks to the investigation to restore herself, but her problems are personal. Haunted by a daughter given up at birth, Robin desperately wants to find her, yet dreads revealing the truth of her conception. But her search to discover the identity of “China Girl” will take her into the city’s darkest recesses and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart.
