With simultaneous plot lines following characters across various continents, Sense8 thoughtfully addresses issues of race, gender, and sexual identity. Through a telepathic connection, the 8 characters discover that empathy can transcend their physical differences and empower them to take on a nefarious organization intent on destroying them. Fans of the show will not want to miss this sneak peek of Season 2, which sees the characters come together for a new mission as their lives are put in danger.
