Synopsis
In Stockholm, the pregnant pathologist Allie tries everything possible to prevent her beloved husband and pilot Leo from taking a flight. In Berlin, 25-year-old Linn joins a cult whose members are desperate to believe in life after death for all kinds of reasons. And in a hospital in the middle of Germany, Hanna wakes up after a serious car accident and wonders how on earth her 14-year-old son Jacob managed to save them both from drowning in their car.

When, a few days after the accident, Jacob suddenly claims to remember a previous life as the pilot of a lost passenger plane, he changes the fate of these three women in a dramatic way. Is Jacob lying or could this really be true?

Note from the artistic direction

Souls skilfully succeeds in creating a high-end concept where multiple temporalities collide. Its complex editing allows for the puzzle pieces to fit together perfectly, and serves as a setting for the series’ astounding visual ambition, while preserving all its mysteries.
