Top Of The Lake: China Girl

Sundays at 8.30pm

Show Synopsis

Recently returned to Sydney, Detective Robin Griffin is trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realises ‘China Girl’ didn’t die alone. Robin looks to the investigation to restore herself, but her problems are personal. Haunted by a daughter given up at birth, Robin desperately wants to find her, but dreads revealing the truth of her conception. This case will take Robin into the city’s darkest recesses, and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart.

About The Show

Academy Award® winning writer and director Jane Campion (The Piano, Portrait of a Lady, Bright Star) returns to the small screen with the much anticipated new instalment of the Top of the Lake, in a new setting and featuring a cast of leading international screen actors, including Elisabeth Moss reprising her lead role.

Moving the location from the remote mountains of New Zealand’s South Island to the bustle of Sydney, Australia with its fusion of urban and beach cultures, Top of the Lake: China Girl brings back Golden Globe® winning actress Elisabeth Moss (Truth, Mad Men, The West Wing) in the lead role of formidable police detective Robin Griffin. She is joined by Academy Award® winner Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies, Lion, The Hours, Moulin Rouge!) and Gwendoline Christie (Game Of Thrones, Star Wars: The Force Awakens).

Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell), David Dencik (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), and Ewen Leslie (The Daughter) take key roles under the seasoned direction of Jane Campion and director Ariel Kleiman (Partisan). Campion and longtime collaborator Gerard Lee again co-wrote the new six-episode story.
