A man haunted by the death of his daughter, predicts the future through his dreams.
Recurring is a drama that focusses on Tim Goldman.
Tim can predict the future through his dreams. He has has this ability for many years but always doubted himself. When his daughter is blinded and eventually dies from an accident that he predicted he blamed himself for not stopping it.
Trying to explain to his wife Marie, who decides he is crazy, he eventually divorces his her and checks himself into a mental institute under the false identity of Colin Grey. He is able to convince the doctors he is crazy and surrounds himself in the only place he feels normal. Using the medication he is able to forget his problems and remember his daughter as living and well.
Colin dreams that, Stuart Peters is going to kill his wife.
Stuart used to be a patient and shared a room with Colin at the hospital. He had an obsession with a pink elephant. Upon his release he went to a resturant where Marie worked and became obsessed with her. When he feels snubbed by her he decides to kill her.
Colin stops taking the drugs and tries to inform the police but don't believe him. He has to take matters into his own hands and kills Stuart.
He gives himself up and Detectives Sarah Carter and Mark Dennings are assigned to solve the case which they eventually do.
Colin is released by the police after an imposter poses as the police Captain. Colin then remembers the horrid truth of his daughter and unwilling to deal with the problem returns to the hospital and checks himself back in.
Sarah tracks Colin down and goes to the mental hospital. Once there she sees that he is heavily medicated and talking and playing with his daughter.
Recurring as a concept can be likened to Inception or Minority report although much more focussed on the human aspects as opposed to sci-fi or action.
As the show continues it will deal with Colin/Tim trying to come to terms with his daughter's death and his ability. Development will deal with his relationship with his wife and helping others with problems that he has dreamt. It will not always need to revolve around solving crimes and can focus on the 'what if you could dream the future' question.
