Orphan Black follows outsider, orphan and street-wise chameleon Sarah. After witnessing a woman’s suicide, Sarah assumes the stranger’s identity – who happens to look just like her. Expecting to solve all her problems by cleaning out the dead woman’s savings, Sarah is instead thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery as she realizes the dizzying truth – she and the dead woman are clones. As Sarah searches for answers, she discovers the chilling fact that there are more people like her out there – genetically identical individuals who were planted in unsuspecting birth parents and nurtured in completely different circumstances. With no idea who created the clones, she’ll need to discover the reason in a hurry as an assassin is killing them one by one.
Cal is the father of Sarah’s daughter, Kira. Once a high-earning tech pro, Cal went “off the grid” after his talents were co-opted by corporate and military agendas. When Sarah crashes back into his life, his emotions are reignited and he puts his newfound family front and center. But is he ready to be the father and partner Kira and Sarah need him to be? Or will his secret past topple the peaceful existence he’s trying to construct for himself?
