What is Dark About?
Dark, a German-language science fiction thriller, is a contemplative exploration of time travel's profound influence on human nature. The series is primarily set in Winden, a fictional German town with a nuclear power plant, a forest, a cave system and four interconnected families holding deep secrets.
