In the first episode, Thomas receives a cryptic invitation to his long-awaited school reunion, leading him to reunite with his old pals Max and Fanny. However, the shadow of their friend Vinca’s mysterious disappearance, which occurred 25 years ago, still haunts them. As they gather once again, Thomas becomes resolute in uncovering the truth behind Vinca’s vanishing act.

But there’s a twist in Thomas’s quest for answers. He also harbours a dark secret from the past – his involvement in hiding the body of their teacher, Alexis Clement, behind the gym wall. The gym, where the shocking act occurred, is now scheduled for imminent demolition to make way for a new media centre.
