In a 20 year long friendship between a group, things will change. But someone in this group dies and someone else in the group might be responsible ...
Part character drama and part murder mystery, Reunion chronicles the lives of a group of friends over the course of one season.
Reunion opens at the funeral of one of the friends, whose death is being investigated by Detective Marjorino. Before the identity of the deceased is revealed, we're transported back to 1986, as the group celebrates their high school graduation.
The group of friends are:
Will longs to leave his small town behind. Aided by an athletic scholarship, he is the first in his family to go to college. He's best friends with Craig and in love with Craig's girlfriend Samantha.
Craig is the handsome and privileged son of real estate mogul Russell Brewster. He looks forward to joining the Ivy League with Samantha on his arm.
Sanantha wants to be a doctor and her fierce amibition is only surpassed by her looks and intelligence.
Jenna's obsessed with becoming a famous actress.
Overachieving, cynical Aaron's hopelessly in love with Jenna and holds out hope that their relationship goes beyond being good friends. He's the nerd of the bunch and an IT wizz.
Carla's Aaron's best friend and hopelessly in love with him. Her passion is photography.
The pilot episode follows all six through their graduation summer of 1986 and follows the formative events that alter their dreams and desires forever. Episode two finds the group a full year later, in 1987 and episode three tells the story of a seminal event in 1988 until the story culminates in the season finale which takes place in 1998.
Along the way, two questions persist: Which of the friends is dead and who was responsible?
