“In the miniseries, a Briton finds himself in the glowing heart of the Australian outback, chased by a huge tanker trying to get him off the road,” the synopsis read. âAn epic cat and mouse chase unfolds and the man later wakes up in the hospital injured, but somehow alive. Except he has no idea who he is. With ruthless figures from his past in pursuit, the man’s search for answers propels him through the vast and ruthless hinterland.
“Full of shocking, surprising, funny and brutal turns, The tourist takes place in a world populated by quirky and enigmatic characters, and offbeat comedy punctuates the high-stakes action. However, at its heart lies a story of self-discovery with a time bomb underneath: As The Man begins to uncover the mystery of who he was, he’s also forced to ask who he is now – and quickly. Will he unlock the secrets of his identity before those who try to kill him catch up to him? “
