Sundance Channel is gearing up to release its original drama "Restless" and teases viewers with a new promo video. Based on William Boyd's bestselling novel of the same title, the story begins as Ruth finds out her mother Sally Gilmartin isn't just an ordinary woman as she thought.
Having been living a double life, Sally was a Russian emigre named Eva Delectorskaya who was recruited to be a British secret agent by the shadowy figure, Lucas Romer, during World War II. A love affair started between Sally and Lucas, but soon a dangerous mission and a deadly betrayal forced her into hiding.
Thirty years later, Sally is gripped with paranoia when she fears her cover has been blown. With no one else to turn to, she recruits her unsuspecting daughter to help uncover the truth and confront the elusive Romer. After a life of conspiracy and intrigue, Eva wonders if she'll ever feel safe.
"Captain America: The First Avenger" leading lady Hayley Atwell portrays the young Sally, with Charlotte Rampling taking on the older version. "Downton Abbey" actress Michelle Dockery stars as Ruth, while Rufus Sewell and Michael Gambon join the cast ensemble as the young and the older versions respectively of Lucas.
The two-part miniseries will premiere Friday, December 7 at 9 P.M. on Sundance Channel.
