The US offers hopeóbut that often comes at a price. Many can earn citizenship legally through a lengthy bureaucratic process, but others find themselves out of luck in a country where virtually anything can be bought. Sex, violence and betrayal become their currency. Some wait in line for permission to enter the U.S. while others take matters into their own hands. Working for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Los Angeles, Max Brogan (Harrison Ford) is an agent sworn to protect our nationís immigration laws. He deals with the thousands that try to cross over into the US in search of a better life. Through the lives of Brogan; Broganís ICE partner Hamid Baraheri (Cliff Curtis); Denise Frankel (Ashley Judd), an immigration defense attorney; and her husband applications adjudicator Cole Frankel (Ray Liotta) we see the impact of immigration goes beyond the job and defines their lives.
