David Haller (Dan Stevens) has spent most of his life in psychiatric centers since he was diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age. At some point, he realizes that his craziness could be something else, in a world where people doesn't know (yet) about the existence of mutants. The series take place in a parallel universe that is not connected with the movies.
