Black Mirror 4×03 Crocodile

The episodes opens with a young couple, Mia (Andrea Riseborough) and Rob (Andrew Gower) at a dance party in Iceland. Throughout the night they are seen drinking and consuming drugs. While driving home, a still drunken and intoxicated Rob hits and kills a cyclist on the road. Mia wants to call the police but Rob begs her to help him to cover up the crime by throwing the body and bicycle into the nearby fjord.

Fifteen years later, Mia is a successful architect and happily married with a 9 year old son. Rob hasn’t fared as well, he’s a recovering drug addict, newly sober, “dried up dog shite”, as he describes himself. He seeks out Mia in a hotel in the city and tells her, he is ready to make amends and that he wants to write an anonymous letter to the widow of the man he killed and whose body was never discovered. Mia is afraid the letter will be traced back to them and could potentially destroy her family and career, and she is willing to do everything to protect her new life.

We also meet Shadzia (Kiran Sonia Sawar), a young insurance investigator, who questions witnesses of an accident, that happened in front of Mia’s hotel, where a self-driving pizza delivery truck hit and injured a pedestrian. She uses a device called “Recaller” to extract the memories of claimants and witnesses, although “memories can be subjective”, as she explains. Inevitably, Shadzia’s work leads her to Mia, who was seen standing at her hotel room window by another witness.
