An airplane takes off from Jamaica in April 2013 and lands in New York State in November 2018. The passengers have not aged a day, and have no idea that any time has passed. Now they have to re-adjust to their new lives.
Ben Stone (Josh Dallas - Once Upon A Time ) tries to bond with his widow and daughter. Their son was on the plane with him, which turns out to be a minor miracle. The boy has leukemia, but in his five-year absence there has been a massive leap in treatment.
By incredible coincidence, one of the other passengers was the woman responsible for the new treatment. In the missing five years her science project has progressed and is now at the stage of human testing. She might actually become a legend in her own lifetime. She is also in a position to make sure Ben's son is on the test list.
Ben's sister Michaela Stone ( Melissa Roxburgh ) is a police detective. She starts to hear a voice in her head that instructs her to do good deeds. She also discovers that everything is somehow connected, possibly as a supernatural act of Jehovah.
The premise of the show may sound familiar. A group of people mysteriously disappear, and then reappear years later with superpowers? This is basically a mainstream version of The 4400 , produced by NBC instead of SyFy.
The FBI are mystified about the plane's explosion. They cannot pin it on the abductees, so everyone is released.
Ben Stone (Josh Dallas - Once Upon A Time ) hears a tune in his head. It leads him to a fellow abductee, a Jamaican man whose son is in Rikers Island jail awaiting trial. Our hero must solve the crime and find the real crook.
There is a subplot about romantic relationships. The Stone siblings were away for five years, and it would be unrealistic for their partners not to have moved on. The cop girl's fiance went on to marry her best friend, but the man with the rocky marriage assumes everything is solid.
