From Oscar nominee and Emmy winner Ava DuVernay and Jill Blankenship, the drama centers on a fun, confident, comic book-loving teenager as she embarks on a journey to find her hidden destiny. When a supernatural event rocks the small town of Port Oswego, Naomi sets out to discover her origins, with the help of her best friend Annabelle. She also has the support of her adoptive parents, military veteran Greg and linguist Jennifer.
After an encounter with Zumbado, the mysterious owner of an old parking lot, leaves her shocked, Naomi seeks help from Dee, the owner of a tattoo parlor, who becomes her mentor. As she unravels the mysteries about herself, Naomi also navigates through friendships at school, including ex-boyfriend and athlete Nathan; Annabelle’s boyfriend Jacob; a proud citizen named Anthony; and comic book enthusiast Lourdes. As Naomi travels to the far reaches of the Multiverse in search of answers, what she discovers will change everything we believe about superheroes.
