Refugees from a war-torn country start showing up to seek asylum in an American town. Only the country these people are from is America and the war they are fleeing is 250 years in the future. The local sheriff with a past, a federal agent and a mother in search of her missing refugee daughter drive this allegory with a surprising conspiracy at the center.
The Crossing season 1 is a sci-fi series on the ABC channel about refugees from the distant future.
Fierce and destructive wars in the future force people to leave their time in the beginning of season 1. They leave all friends and relatives, the whole familiar world for them, going back to the past for 250 years, to live their years in silence and peace there. The fear of a terrible death forces them sacrifice a lot, but a new place does not promise a carefree life, which they so hoped for. Despite the fact that refugees from the future chose a small fishing town as the end point of their crossing, their behavior, tastes, looks and habits very extradite them quickly. Local residents led by the sheriff begin to suspect something and organize their investigation, trying to uncover the truth about this mysterious migration.
It is noteworthy that some “guests” have supernatural abilities and are ready to go to great lengths so that there will not be certain events in the future. But those, who are interested in the military scenario, cross the time after the refugees. It is possible that crossing the time looped a series of events leading to the apocalypse… We will find out this by watching all the episodes of season 1 The Crossing.
