Markesha explains her plight and Rio has an idea that could serve them both.
The smuggler is a profession that’s never died, and even after 200 years and a global apocalypse the practice still goes on. The only way to bypass the S.A.D.P.’s Immigration Processing Centers is to go through a Coyote, or people smuggler. The job entails everything from driving over treks of wastelands, food rationing, guarding your “pack” (customers), forging documents, and networking beyond the border. Skilled Coyotes like Rio gain a reputation for quality and charge a handsome price for their work. Unskilled Coyotes never last long enough to gain a reputation of any kind.
