Holly Linneman narrates this story of Boston teenagers who are brought together by an unthinkable tragedy. On a cloudy November day, the Tobin Bridge collapses, plunging cars into the Mystic River or Charlestown. Victims are rushed to Boston General Hospital, and there Scott, Skyler, and siblings Jason and Alexa meet as they anxiously wait for news about their loved ones. Linneman delivers a mostly flawless performance, save for an uncertain but sparingly used Boston accent. With a keen ear for teen dialogue, Linneman makes every interaction, from the mundane to the emotionally explosive, sound authentic. The bridge collapse is an attention-grabbing plot device. But Linneman especially shines as the story reveals itself to be a thoughtful character study punctuated with moments of high drama and surprising revelations.
