When "Harlan" is found dead it starts a series of events involving the family. The matriarch of the family is "Linda Drysdale" who is Harlan's oldest daughter played by Jamie Lee Curtis. Her husband "Richard" played by Don Johnson seems like a leech. Their son is "Ransom Drysdale" played by Chris Evans. His character is kind of a jerk.

The man charged with unraveling the mystery was "Benoit Blanc" played by Daniel Craig . He was joined by "Lieutenant Elliot" played by LaKeith Stanfield. Also involved in the story was the nurse "Marta Carbrera" played by Ana de Armas who played Harlan's nurse.
