Boarderland, Boarder, Crossing Boarders

A new original series in which average Americans are confronted with the realities of illegal immigration while retracing the footsteps of dead border runners. Six Americans are tasked by a frontier medical examiner with retracing the footsteps of three dead migrants – three of the nearly 6,000 illegal immigrants who have perished in the desert in the last 15 years while trying to cross from Mexico. Gathered at the morgue, they’re told: “We’ve given them a name. You must give them a story.” Split in three groups, the six – from all walks of life – head for Central America. From there, they work their way back as the migrants they are following did, finally regrouping at the U.S.-Mexican border where they will attempt the journey that proved fatal to ‘their’ migrant.
