Paul Rader, a successful attorney in Potomac, Maryland, finds his law firm employee Erin Baxter murdered. As he is set up, he breaks bail and uproots his family to Bridgewater, Iowa, posing as the non-existent Holland family. It's hard enough to lay false trails for Agent Raj Rao's US Marshalls team. Neither wife Lily nor kid son Michael 'Mikey' is good at keeping their cover. Firstborn Henry refuses to have his entire life ruined and abandon girl-friend Kylie for a previously absent father, whose innocence isn't obvious to him. Daughter Hannah soon takes to the part because of neighbor Bob Sullivan's equally friendly and hunky son Brady in her new class.
