"The Crossing" stars Steve Zahn as Jude Ellis, the sheriff of Port Canaan, a small fishing town on the Oregon coast. Having relocated from Oakland to escape a strained marriage and a dark past as a big city cop, his goal is to build a quiet new life for himself and for, eventually, his young son. But those plans for a quiet life change instantly when 47 refugees from a war-torn country wash up on his beach seeking asylum. But the country they're from is America ... and the war they're fleeing is 180 years in the future. As the Feds set out to uncover the truth behind the mysterious migration, Jude will launch an investigation of his own with the help of his loyal sheriff's deputy and Port Canaan native, Nestor Rosario (Rick Gomez). As the search for answers in this small town gets underway, the lives of the people here - both the townspeople and these newcomers - will never be the same.
