About The Affair

At once deeply observed and intriguingly elusive, The Affair explores the emotional effects of an extramarital relationship. Noah is a New York City schoolteacher and budding novelist with a wife of 20 years and four children. Alison is a young waitress and wife from Montauk at the end of Long Island, NY, trying to piece her life back together in the wake of a tragedy. The provocative SHOWTIME® Original Series unfolds from multiple separate perspectives, using the distinct memory biases of each character to tell the story.
