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.
