Emma Ren: We've got 47 survivors. I'm afraid that's all we're gonna find. Have any of them said anything to you? We're having trouble getting them to talk.

Jude Ellis: No. Most were in shock, hypothermic. So, do you know what kind of ship they were on?

Emma Ren: No. And so far, no vessels reported missing. No distress signals.

Jude Ellis: [realizing how bizarre it sounds] Wait. So, what then, a plane?

Emma Ren: Not according to FAA.

Jude Ellis: Well, they had to come from somewhere.

Emma Ren: I don't think from here. What little they've said suggests they're looking for asylum.

Jude Ellis: Asylum? You're telling me that these people are refugees?

Emma Ren: That's what we're trying to find out.”
