Top Of The Lake: China Girl Returns
Top Of The Lake: China Girl Returns to BBC Two as Detective Robin Griffin is searching for the daughter she gave up for adoption 17 years ago. When the body of a young woman washes up on Bondi beach, Robin is caught up in a case which will lead closer to home than she could ever have expected.
Detective Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss) arrives back in Sydney after four years in New Zealand, unwilling to talk about the past, and eager to throw herself into her work. When a suitcase containing the body of a young woman washes up on Bondi beach, Robin and her new partner Miranda (Gwendoline Christie) begin an investigation which will lead them into the dark side of Sydney’s sex industry, with reverberations they could never have imagined.
Privately, Robin is in search of the daughter she gave up for adoption at birth. Now 17, troubled Mary (Alice Englert) is at odds with her adoptive parents Julia (Nicole Kidman, pictured) and Pyke (Ewan Leslie), and deeply in thrall to her much older boyfriend Puss (David Dencik) – a dangerous philosopher with links to a brothel where a young sex worker has disappeared.
