A grocery store clerk receives a mysterious call that puts him into a trance and sends him to a rooftop to shoot a Federal witness... through an air vent a block away. The government calls in Dr. Leigh Rosen and his team of "Alphas", people with special neurological abilities, to locate the hugger.
With over 6 Billion people on the planet who are your "average joe" type of people, it can be overwhelming to imagine. However, if you look deeper, you will see that many of these "average joe" people have unique abilities. These are what I like to call, Alphas. Some of these, such as the type that I have as co-workers, are able to accomplish things that are amazing while others are the type of people who are upset, misguided and afraid. They have abilities that are under the par and are very scary.
Alphas like to follow a group setting of "average joe" people who give them the power to have these unique abilities both mental and physical. Led by Dr. Leigh Rosen (David Strathairn), the team of Alphas investigates cases that have Alpha activity to find that the CIA, FBI and even the Pentagon are unable to handle the situations and resolve them. Thus, the team takes over on this matter. The Alphas and their personalities connect with each other to bring the perfect balance. Despite their quirky behaviors and mysterious backgrounds, they work to fight crime and catch the enemy before it is too late.
