In the midst of a bitter family feud, the much divided Rolland family is thrown together when news of their father’s untimely passing places them on a red-eye flight from Seattle to Washington D.C. Although, they are physically close in the tight space of the aircraft, Rege, Mark and Kit are at their farthest distance apart emotionally.
Until the unthinkable happens.
Two hours into the flight, missiles streak across the star-filled sky, the detonation of a nuclear warhead causes the plane to make a forced landing.
A family torn apart are now together living the inconceivable. Circumstances outside of their shelter are dire and the future far from certain.
America is devastated and crippled by the nuclear attacks. Rege, Mark and Kit must chart out their path deciding what to do and where to go. What is right? What is wrong? Not only for the Rolland Family, but for everyone, survival is the top priority. Each day is a fight against the odds for water and food, while holding on to every ounce of hope they can live long enough to see tomorrow.
