Set in Greylock, New Hampshire, the upcoming hour-long series follows the small town as it grapples with the aftermath after a valuable mineral resource is discovered under the land. When a major mining company comes into town with intentions of acquiring the hot commodity, rebellious high school teacher Sarah Cooper (Stella Baker) comes up with an unconventional plan to help save their home. After learning that Greylock was never properly claimed by the United States, Sarah and her friends face their biggest challenge yet: how to run their own nation and protect their land.
