Shrouded with mystery at every turn, Losing Alice is a cinematic neo-noir psychological thriller that follows an aging director, Alice, and her growing obsession with a young screenwriter, Sophie, whose dark and trouble script appears more truth than fiction.

Using flashbacks and flash-forwards in a satisfyingly complex narrative that takes the viewer through the conscious and subconscious of its protagonist’s mind, the series follows Alice (Zurer), a 48-year-old female film director, who feels irrelevant since raising her family. After a brief encounter on the train, she becomes obsessed with a 24-year-old screenwriter femme fatale, Sophie (Kornowski), and eventually surrenders her moral integrity in order to achieve power, relevance and success.
