The musical, according to press notes, follows "nine refugees in their quest for asylum in the U.S. and the three INS agents who decide their fate. Do they stay or do they go? How would you decide? Get it wrong and you might as well sentence them to death.... or worse. Inspired by true stories from the asylum process; stories of life and death."

The creative team also includes Nate Patton (musical direction), Denny Paschall (choreography), Peter Flynn (dramaturg), Michael Piatkowski (costume design) and Amanda Woodward (lighting design).
