The world as we know it has ended
A giant solar storm turned off our lights and destroyed much of our technology, bringing us back to the proverbial Stone Age.
Max had been prepping for this event, literally his whole life, using his considerable financial resources to construct the ultimate sanctuary in Colorado, known as Cicada. Surrounded by a massive wall, two miles around, their scientists work together to find out why the solar storms still continue a year after the event.
Outside a prophet approaches, followed by hundreds of red-robed soldiers, seeking god-like abilities and their Promised Land, Cicada.
On a nearby mesa, Senator Westerling runs a Cicada replica. Driven by a different purpose, he shelters a secret that threatens all of humanity.
As hope evaporates and evil seeks a way in, all will be affected by Cicada.
