The story revolves around the fraud Ripley, who is figuring out how to make ends meet in New York in the 60s. A rich man asks him if he wants to travel to Italy to convince his son to come home. Tom accepts the assignment and that starts a complex life of fraud, deceit and murder.

The series is based on the Tom Ripley books by Patricia Highsmith. It isn't the first adaptation of the books. In 1999, a movie was made called The Talented Mr. Ripley.
