Netflix’s synopsis of the series promises an intriguing story, following Erin, the ‘mum, wife, and teacher’ whose life is at risk of unravelling when it becomes apparent that she is more than she lets on after she is recognised by an armed robber.
The supply teacher has moved with her family to Barcelona, where it would appear she is hoping to cover her tracks.
It says: ‘Who Is Erin Carter? combines a unique blend of genres: Erin’s family life and work life at the local international school offers rich character-driven domestic drama, while the crime story combines nail-biting plot twists with breath-taking action sequences.’
Between them, the seven parts feature gunfights, car chases, and great escapes, as the title character desperately tries to hold things together.
