Lana spends her morning slogging though a calculus exam, oblivious to the news spreading across social media. When her boyfriend demands they escape before it’s too late, she refuses. She’s not leaving without her parents.
It’s a race against the clock for the Macherts to find each other and reach safety before the world they know and love ceases to exist.
