RESIDUE is a three-part supernatural sci-fi thriller exclusively on Netflix.

An unnamed UK metropolis. The future. Renowned photojournalist JENNIFER PRESTON is investigating the aftermath of a terrible explosion that ripped through the city on New Year’s Eve.

Known simply as ‘The Catastrophe’, this shocking tragedy has left behind a festering wound. The city is on edge, thousands have evacuated and a sprawling, militarized Quarantine Zone has been erected around the epicentre of the blast. The ‘QZ’, as it becomes known, is a network of empty buildings and abandoned streets, shrouded beneath clinical plastic and fenced in behind impenetrable barricades. Heavily armed security units ensure that nobody goes in and nobody comes out.

As unexplained and increasingly bizarre acts of violence erupt across the city, Jennifer begins to notice strange, ephemeral phantoms in her photographs. What begins as an artistic documentation of The Catastrophe’s lingering aftershock soon becomes an obsession with ‘The Phenomenon’ – a seeming paranormal phenomenon gripping the perimeter of the Quarantine Zone. Jennifer slowly but surely becomes convinced that The Catastrophe and The Phenomenon she is uncovering are not disconnected.
