The series features a cast of Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff, Sofia Bryant, and Kathleen Rose Perkins. Both the main characters have received appraisal for their performances in the show.
The show revolves around the story of Sydney Noval (portrayed by Sophia Lillis) who is a 17-year-old girl who comes to a realization that she has telekinetic powers. The first episode titled “Dear Diary..” features Syd after the death of her father. She is now living with her mother and brother. She has been advised by her counselor to maintain a journal as an outlet for her anger. Later that night, after a frustrating day, she is sitting on the floor of her bed when the wall behind her cracks. That is the first manifestation of her telekinetic powers. However, Sydney is not aware of this and blames the wall being a collapsing as a result of the house being very old.
In the episodes that follow, we see Sydney using her powers unintentionally and causing accidents in her surroundings. Sydney starts questioning her sanity with the events that have been happening around her and even becomes distanced from her relationships. In the process of all this, coming to terms with her powers, falling relationships, her sexuality, and her identity, Sydney must figure out a way to come out all this strong.
