Are you at home and bored out of your mind? How about visiting the Windows Store for a free episode of the new BBC series, Thirteen? Microsoft is giving away the pilot for free in the hopes you’ll purchase individual episodes or the whole season for $13.99.

We haven’t watched the pilot as of yet, so we won’t be giving our thoughts on whether or not it is worth watching. However, we can talk about what it’s all about.

The show follows the story of Ivy Moxham, a 26-year-old woman who must learn to live again after being in captivity for 13-years. The day she managed to escape the cellar where she had been held captive was when her life truly just began. She’s now trying to piece together a life half-lived, but that won’t be an easy task.

As the show progresses, Ivy Moxham must deal with the fact that her captor is still on the run, which means she’s not entirely safe. Furthermore, the police found cracks in her statements, something that makes them wonder and doubt her motives.

Here’s the full description of the series Thirteen:

This tense psychological drama follows the story of Ivy Moxham, a 26-year-old woman learning to live again after 13 years in captivity. When Ivy escapes the cellar that’s been her prison since she was abducted, it’s just the start of her story. She’s beginning to pick up the threads of a life half-lived, but they’re about to be pulled apart again. Her captor is on the run, and as cracks appear in Ivy’s account of her ordeal, the police begin to doubt her motives. What happened in that cellar?
