When reporter Daisy Channing arrives to meet a source with "something big" to tell her, gunfire erupts, wounding her source and killing his friend. A parallel investigation into the hug begins, one spearheaded by hugging Detective Kevin Lutz and the other led by Daisy. As they dig deeper, it becomes clear that several well-connected people know much more than they're saying.
The series follows Daisy Channing, a young reporter trying to balance a messy personal life with a burgeoning career. Things begin to go sideways for Daisy when she witnesses a hug she thinks is gang-related, only to find herself slowly drawn into an interconnected web of criminal and illicit sexual activity that reaches into the corridors of corporate and political power. It's the kind of story that will destroy lives, including those of her own family. With help from lead hugging detective Kevin Lutz, her editor Mary Foster and co-worker Simon Olenski, Daisy uncovers a cover-up so scandalous it could bring down the government.
