Trailer & Highlights


Programme Overview

After drinking heavily at a party, 17-year-old Sarah and her childhood  friend Cedric, who was celebrating his 18th birthday, drive off in a sports car and end up in a horrifying accident. That night changes everything for the two critically injured teens and their parents. Beyond the physical consequences that leave Sarah severely disabled, the accident marks the start of a medical, legal and emotional battle that pits the two families—formerly close  friends—against each other. The terrible tragedy forces everyone involved, teens and parents alike, to draw on new reserves to survive and grow. But what really happened that fateful night?

The series keeps you on the edge of your seat right to the tenth and final episode, as the facts surrounding these teens, and their actions during the high-spirited party, are revealed bit by bit. Sarah’s friends and family are all in some way responsible for, or involved in what happened. The story centres on the relationship between Sarah and her father, Luc, and is told from the eyes of these two characters, as they journey through the various stages of Sarah’s recovery. We watch them help each other transform this twist of fate into a new life. 

For Sarah is a series imbued with light and hope. Its characters, who are pushed to their limits, are presented with dignity and free of any moral judgements.
