The Republic of Sarah season 1
Having discovered deposits of the very valuable mineral coltan, the greedy mining company decides to demolish the local town of Greylock in order to replace it with a plant for processing expensive raw materials. But local activist and high school teacher Sarah Cooper, finding a loophole in the law, is seeking through the courts to recognize Graylock as a separate state that has never been part of the United States.
The Republic of Sarah season 1 episodes list:
The bucolic tranquility of Greylock, New Hampshire is upended when a massive vein of coltan - an incredibly valuable mineral used in tech - is discovered under the town. State-backed mining company Lydon Industries swoops in with plans to extract the mineral, which will wipe Greylock off the map. With her friends and family in danger of losing their homes, rebellious high school teacher Sarah Cooper vows to stop Lydon's bulldozers. Leading Lydon's efforts is Sarah's estranged brother, Danny Cooper. After enduring a difficult childhood at the hands of his mother, former New Hampshire state senator Ellen Cooper, Danny is eager to exact his revenge on a community he feels abandoned him. Sarah enlists her friends - fellow teacher Corinne Dearborn, police officer Amy "AJ" Johnson, and diner manager Grover Simms - in the fight against Danny. There seems to be no way to stop the town's impending demise, until Sarah proposes an oddly intriguing solution: Greylock could declare independence, since the town's land was never properly claimed by the United States. With the help of a group of supporters that includes Sarah's friends and three of her teenage students - LA transplant Maya Jiménez, introspective outsider Tyler Easterbrook, and preppy "popular girl" Bella Whitmore - they win the vote. Now, Sarah and her allies must confront an even more daunting task: building a country from scratch.
Sarah is faced with her first major challenge as a leader when Greylock's power is shut off. Negotiating with utility companies doesn't go as planned, so Sarah proposes a controversial new idea that involves inviting Danny and Lydon Industries back to town. After a pep talk from AJ, Sarah knows she must make some tough decisions, which causes problems for Grover and Corinne. Meanwhile, Bella pushes boundaries with her dad when it comes to spending time with Tyler and Sarah, which leaves Maya wondering if she misjudged Bella.
When the governor of New Hampshire closes Greylock's borders, Sarah calls on Bella, Tyler, and Maya's spunky teenage energy to help her solve the problem. Corinne pushes Danny to reveal a secret that he's been keeping from everyone, including Sarah and Ellen. Meanwhile, an extreme act from Grover reveals the depth of his struggles with the recent loss of a loved one.
When Sarah discovers that everyone in Greylock is being charged foreign transaction fees, she enlists her friends to help her create own currency. Grover shares with Danny what really happened to Corinne after he left. Bella and Tyler try to find a way to make their relationship work long distance. Meanwhile, Ellen asks Sarah for help with her sobriety, which forces Sarah to learn to let go.
With Lydon's workers causing problems, Sarah drafts an executive order to help protect Greylock's residents, but her new law leaves one of their own facing consequences instead. Grover introduces Danny to a new friend, but they have more in common than Danny realizes. Maya feels abandoned by everyone in her life, but Luis proves he's in her corner. Meanwhile, AJ ignores Corinne's advice when it comes to her relationship status.
After a damaging magazine article is written about Sarah, she realizes that it's time for Greylock to create a more representative government. With an election open to anyone, Danny, Maya, AJ, and Corinne take a shot at the four available seats. Meanwhile, AJ, Sarah, and Grover all find themselves facing complications in their respective love lives.
With the government newly formed, Greylock's fledgling congress must decide their immigration policy now that new people want to immigrate. Sarah and Danny are faced with someone from their past and have different reactions to the visitor. AJ shares a personal secret with Grover to encourage him to get the help he needs. Danny helps Corinne with some legal paperwork, but Corrine gets more than she bargained for. Meanwhile, Maya discovers that Tyler is a talented photographer and submits his photos to an upcoming art show, leaving Tyler upset.
