The teen thriller series Cruel Summer follows two teenage girls: Kate Wallis, a popular high schooler who disappears without a trace, and Jeanette Turner, an awkward teen who takes over Kate's life after she goes missing.

Years later, Kate is found alive and accuses Jeanette of witnessing her abduction but doing nothing about it, causing Jeanette to become one of the most hated people in America. Episodes alternate between Jeanette and Kate's viewpoint until the true story unfolds.
