Plot Description of The White Lotus:
A woman named Thea becomes involved in the affairs of her family when she learns she’s not just royalty, but the daughter of Prince Siddhartha. The prince’s marriage to Thea will unite their families, but there’s one problem: he doesn’t know that his new wife is actually his daughter! The White Lotus, which is the story of Thea’s life (and her previous lives), will air in 2020.
“The White Lotus” places that question, in both literal and figurative incarnations, on the shoulders of each character who arrives by chartered boat to the secluded, exclusive White Lotus hotel and resort in Hawaii.
In a “Big Little Lies”-like opening-scene reveal, “The White Lotus” shares that someone here will die, and then jumps back in time one week.
The White Lotus staff aims to be, as the fussy, finicky resort manager Armond (Murray Bartlett) tells employees in the premiere episode “Arrivals,” “more generic.” The goal, Armond explains, is to “disappear behind our masks as pleasant, interchangeable helpers.
The goal is to create for the guests an overall impression of vagueness that can be very satisfying.”

The characters are fascinating in their own right, but they’re also just going through life events along similar lines as most people do so you can easily see yourself mirrored back to your own reality by these stories.
