Arquette plays Peggy, an addict who decides to make a new start by becoming a private investigator after the death of her beloved mother with whom she lived in the small desert town of Yucca Valley, California.

I May Destroy You’s Opia stars as Carol, Peggy’s closest friend, the bored fiancĂ© of an ER doctor and a permissive new stepmother — who has a secret of her own. Everybody Loves Raymond and Fargo star Garrett will play Bruce, a private investigator whose business is circling the drain, and who becomes Peggy’s reluctant employer.
