Small town. Big secrets.

It’s a place where the lives of three strangers unexpectedly intertwine…

…Martha, a reclusive doctor seeking a solution to the mystery of the pandemic,

…Jake, a cab driver seeking his birth mother,

…Sophie, a young, desperate pregnant woman seeking safe haven from abuse.

Brought together by violence, these unlikely friends forge an alliance that may help reshape the world.
