Summary
With the passing of a new state law, it becomes a felony to harbor an undocumented immigrant in Oklahoma. When Robert John Brown, a church-going family man and respected community member, is caught hiding a barn full of them, he is arrested and sent to prison. This shocking event sends ripples through the town -- dividing neighbors, causing rifts in his family, and spurring controversy across the state. Meanwhile, his ten-year-old grandson tries to help the sole escapee reunite with his family, and his granddaughter struggles after her illegal immigrant husband is deported
