The end of the world hits close to home.
Not-too-far from here, and not-too-long from now, the Apocalypse arrives in Alberta. An insidious orange cloud consumes the globe in a haze of pandemonium, madness and death.
Now it is at Delaney’s doorstep, and it threatens to seep in. Duct tape, plastic and sheer panic may be enough to keep the fog sealed out, but Delaney and Maddie are less prepared to cope with the internal catastrophe that has been sealed in.
Global disaster and personal crisis exert equal pressure on an unstrung family, as they wait in hope for the ‘all clear’.
