Showtime released the trailer for the upcoming season of the IDA Award-winning series The Trade ahead of its premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

Directed by Emmy(R) and DGA Award winner and Oscar nominee Matthew Heineman, the four-part series follows Central Americans on an odyssey to the United States (including some heading back home after being deported), while also delving into the shadow industries that prey on them every step along the way. By shedding light on the smugglers and traffickers who take advantage of the migrants’ vulnerability and on law enforcement pursuing them at the border, The Trade brings audiences inside the rarely seen underbelly of the migrants’ world and humanizes their struggle to survive.

The Trade premieres on Friday, March 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Showtime.
