Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life changing prison can really be.
While Madeline and Celeste take new in town single mom Jane under their wing, none of them realises how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all. Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive. Written by
"Avenue Q," the theatrical production that Madeline is working on (and trying to advocate for in the face of community objections) is a real musical, and, as described in the show, really performed with puppets. The real "Avenue Q" had a very successful Broadway run (from 2003 to 2009) and won the so-called "Triple Crown" of Tony Awards (Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Original Score) in 2004. The New York production moved to the off-Broadway New World Stages in 2009, where (as of August 2017) it has been running ever since. Although the show contains puppets, it was never intended for children, so given all the awards, critical acclaim, and financial success garnered by the musical over the years, in the context of "Big Little Lies," Renata's objections are meant to be seen as baseless and vindictive.

This short series has all of the ingredients to be an amazing award winning show: a great cast with great perfomances, an awesome production, a kick-ass soundtrack, a good mistery, an excelent character development,... It's both realistic and surreal, it's full of nuances, of pain and joy, it's overall just an amazing experience.
