Plot Synopsis

ODYSSEY is a one-hour thriller that embarks on a complex journey through global politics and military secrets, where three strangers have only one thing in common: the truth. An international conspiracy explodes when three strangers' lives unexpectedly collide -- a female soldier, a corporate lawyer and a political activist. After a team of American soldiers battle Jihadists in North Africa, they're shocked to find that one of the men they killed is Al Qaeda's top man. Sgt. Odelle Ballard -- a soldier, mother, wife and the unit's only female member -- discovers computer files that suggest a major U.S. corporation is funding the Jihadists. But before she can tell anyone, her team is attacked and left for dead by private military contractors called Osela. News is reported that the unit was wiped out, but the truth is that Odelle survived and is the only witness to her unit's assassination by U.S. Special Forces. In New York, former U.S. Attorney Peter Decker is working on a merger deal for the same company that was funneling money to the Jihadists. Meanwhile, Harrison Walters, a political activist and trust fund kid, meets a hacker who claims to have unearthed a massive military-industrial conspiracy. And he's right: He's stumbled onto the cover-up that began with Odelle and will soon be out in the open and everyone's lives will be in danger. The only way they'll ever save their country, their families and themselves is by joining forces and exposing the people behind it. On Monday, March 25, 2015, NBC hosted screenings of AMERICAN ODYSSEY in 10 cities, and, in conjunction with the screenings, honored 10 10 female veterans and active servicewomen at each regional screening, held in: Atlanta, GA; Chicago, IL; Houston, TX; Los Angeles, CA; Minneapolis, MN; New York, NY; Philadelphia, PA; San Francisco, CA; Seattle, WA; and Washington, DC.

In the season ender, "Real World," as the world discovers that the truth about Odelle, she and Aslam find refuge in Barcelona with someone from Luc's past. But when Odelle finally has a chance to tell her story to reporter Isabel Rainey, she encounters an unavoidable obstacle. Meanwhile, back in New York, the truth about Societel Mining's misdeeds sends ripples through Peter's world and Harrison works to expose Osela.
