Plot

The miniseries explores the issue of immigration and refugees who flee to Canada after 9/11 and the people who sacrifice their lives to help or hinder them. The series features six intersecting stories focusing on the crises of refugees, set in different locations: four Honduran boys are found dead in a produce truck at the Canada-U.S. border crossing; a dedicated refugee lawyer Jerry Fischer is forced to choose between his family, work, and life when he becomes involved with an Afghani woman's refugee claim; and ambitious right-wing politician Nina Wade finds her career end disastrously after a federal by-election that moves her into a position at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada.
