Newly elected sheriff Mark Lamb sends six volunteers into the Pinal County Detention Center on a mission to uncover valuable Intel about the gangs, drugs and operational issues that plague his facility.
With three participants in the jail and two more on their way in, Sheriff Lamb's mission-based program is off to the races.
With all seven participants embedded in the facility, some struggle to maintain their distance from one another meanwhile one participant threatens to bring the whole program to an abrupt end.
The participants begin to focus on their missions, some find early success while others are met with immediate interference and Sheriff Lamb is forced to make a tough decision.
The participants are tested by thieves and the racial politics of jail, forcing them to become either targets and victims or threats and aggressors.
David climbs the ranks in the pod and struggles to remember which side he is on. Abner runs the Chicanos as the enforcer and is put to the test when one of his own commits an offense. The women become suspicious that they are unfairly targeted by the COs.
More than halfway through their time in jail, the participants struggle to make progress on their missions- as pod drama boils over, some hit their breaking point.
The participants struggle with race politics, jailhouse thieves, and protecting their cover stories, but for one participant the secrets become too difficult to keep.
The Sheriff and his team face a tough decision and the consequences of one participant's actions put the remaining participants in very real danger.
Now that one of the participants has blown his/her cover, Sheriff Lamb and his team are forced to make a decision: end the program early, or risk the lives of the remaining participants.
