Plot Synopsis

In this half-hour series, Michael K. Williams explores underground economies in America and around the world. Along the way, he meets people who are willing to break the law and risk everything they have just to get by, and reveals his own issues with addiction, crime and poverty. In the series premiere, Williams travels to Newark NJ, where unemployment and lack of hope turns a tradition of joyriding stolen cars into an international criminal operation. In a later episode, Williams meets with fishermen in Hout Bay, South Africa who turn to poaching to survive as a result of less of opportunity in the post-apartheid years. On Friday, July 1, 2016 --- four days before the official series premiere -- Viceland released the entire first episode on its YouTube channel and on its website.
