Set in the 90s, this dramatic thriller follows civil rights attorney Jim Grant who's in the midst of a custody battle for his seven year old daughter with his recovering drug addict ex-wife. After the arrest of Weather Underground activist fugitive, Sharon Solartz, young, ambitious reporter Ben Schulberg who's assigned to write the story interviews Grant, who refused to represent Solarz after she contacted him. Later, after finding out that Grant left town with his daughter, Isabel, Schulberg soon uncovers that Jim Grant is actually Weather Underground fugitive Jason Sinai. Once he leaves his daughter with his estranged brother in New York City, Grant goes on the run from the FBI across America, encountering old Weather Underground buddies while trying to locate his former girlfriend, another former activist who he claims can clear his name, and hopefully get his daughter back. Meanwhile, as Schulberg continues to investigate Sinai's whereabouts, he interviews the FBI agent who first investigated the crime Sinai went on the run for, and ends up falling for his daughter in the process. He later uncovers a shocking connection between them, and Jason Sinai, which can exonerate him.
