What is Netflix series White Lines about?

Twenty years after Manchester DJ Axel's mysterious disappearance from the White Isle, his body is found on a beach.

His sister Zoe (Laura Haddock) is determined to find out what happened, and returns to the Spanish island for answers.

Zoe's investigation leads her through a thrilling world of dance clubs, lies and cover-ups.

To make things more complicated, she has been forced to take matters into her own hands as the police won't touch a two decade old case.

Zoe must confront the darker sides of her own character to better understand her brother's death.

The series was created by La Casa De Papel's Alex Pina.
