  • Drama
  • Season 1

This exciting one-hour drama takes us into the changing world of draft dodgers, civil rights, rock and roll, free love and the dreams of 1968. It is told through the interwoven stories of Travis Daly, a young guilt-ridden Vietnam veteran and Ruby Howard, now living in Canada, but a woman with a secret past of violent activism. When we meet them, Travis has been coerced by the CIA to pretend to be a draft dodger, in order to infiltrate Ruby's family and get enough information to tie her to a violent anti-Vietnam incident two years before. However, Travis bonds with Ruby and her family. Can they thwart the CIA and find redemption from the actions of their past?
