A Texas police dispatcher adverse to guns and violence suspects his runaway teenage daughter has been kidnapped by human traffickers. He transfers as a cop to El Paso’s vice squad on a relentless mission to find her. The series follows a religious man’s journey into the heart of darkness, the world of “sexually oriented businesses”, and his sinister evolution into a criminal mind, in the style of Breaking Bad.
In Season 1, he rescues her, only to discover she’s been brainwashed and doesn’t want to be rescued. He tries to deprogram her, loses her, then goes to criminal extremes to save her, all his faith and morality eroded by a devil’s pact to trade and sacrifice human lives.
