Family’s mysterious time warp
Manifest, Nine, Wednesday at 8.30pm
RETURNING to New York from a family vacation in Jamaica, the Stone family is separated when adult siblings Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh, pictured) and Ben, along with Ben’s gravely ill son Cal, are bumped to a later flight, while Ben’s wife, daughter and parents fly ahead.
When that later flight lands, the passengers are bewildered to discover that five-and-a-half years have gone by.
They attempt to reconnect with the loved ones who mourned their passing and moved on long ago, and try to make sense of a mystifying phenomenon steering them to act in ways they don’t understand.
Ben and Michaela investigate a case connected to Flight 828, while Olive and Cal realise that being twins after five years apart is harder than they thought.
