In the near future, natural disasters, famine and war have ripped America apart, creating the police state of New America. Noah Kross (Nicolas Cage – The Rock) is an enforcement officer with The Humanity Bureau, a government organisation tasked with searching society for those who qualify for a fresh life in New Eden, a utopian community dedicated to those in the most need.
Leaving the safety of New America on his latest assignment, Noah meets Rachel (Sarah Lind - Fargo) and her son, finding an unexpected connection to the pair that drives him to investigate the New Eden selection process and it's ulterior motives. Embarking on a pursuit of the now rogue Noah is Adam (Hugh Dillon – Twin Peaks), a government enforcer out to shut down Noah's growing sense of distrust and rebellion. Beginning a chase across the wilds of the apocalyptic land, Noah reevaluates his duty as he makes critical discoveries about the true intentions of The Humanity Bureau.
