In the year 2019, the United States has become a third-world country in the wake of the Pulse -- an electromagnetic shockwave unleashed by nuclear terrorists in 2009. This is Max's (Jessica Alba) world, an unforgiving place even for a genetically-engineered soldier like her. From her point of view, she's just a revved-up girl trying to make a run-down world a better place. On the run from her creators and constantly in search of her past, Max joins forces with the idealistic cyberjournalist "Eyes Only", otherwise known as Logan Cale (Michael Weatherly). This show is an entertaining combination of action, drama, humor, romance and suspense, and it is an intriguing "what if" look into the not-too-distant future.
With Max now determined to turn the tables on White and pro-actively lead a transgenic resistance against the fast growing and dangerous xenophobia that is sweeping the country, events unfold that place our heroine in a potentially more vulnerable position than ever before. Attempting a rescue of three of her "brothers" imprisoned and on the verge of execution, Max's misguided trust in a seemingly helpful, but odd individual places her directly in the line of fire when the man's close familial connection to White is revealed. Double-crossed and potentially on her own due to a recent estrangement from Logan, Max must not only figure out a way out of her seemingly deadly predicament but also turn the tide on White's plans to expose the transgenics to a less than accepting populace. With time running out and Max, Alec and the rest of their kind backed into a corner from which there may be no escape, we head toward the final showdown of humans vs. transgenics.
