Description

In 2087, coastal flooding and extreme changes in the weather have turned the United States into a nation of migrants and tent-cities.

Crossing is not an easy task because Canada has established a border wall, both physical and electronic. The wall is constantly patrolled by low-flying drones and satellites. The traffickers take them to a crossing point in remote parts of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Montana from which they will attempt their crossing. In making the crossing, some are successful and some are not, but even for those who succeed, life is not what they had hoped it to be.
