Civilizations rise, and they fall, often by their own hand. Ours – is no different. And this is how it happened. Synopsis: Just outside a small town in America's heartland, a young Iowan farm boy, Josh Peterson, finds his life turned upside down by an odd series of reoccurring dreams. Suddenly caught in a violent assault, Josh watches as two mysterious figures from these dreams abruptly appear to intervene in his behalf. In one inexplicable moment, these men somehow suspend reality, and in the process, rescue him from certain death. In the years that follow, Josh struggles to understand what happened that day, and the meaning of the dreams that somehow come to shape his life. In time, he finds these images connect him to a people who once lived centuries earlier, and who were themselves rescued by these same men. While he wrestles with this, a cascading chain of global events begins to unfold around him, paralleling the tragedies he's witnessed in his dreams. Created by the arrogance of man, this crisis quickly begins to unravel the fabric of civilization, tracing out the now familiar pattern of 'Rise and Fall' – even as an unseen force lingers at the edge of perception, drawing Josh through an event anticipated eons in advance. This as civilization itself teeters on the lip of an abyss. Steve Lee
Somewhere in the North End of London, a clueless janitor desperately tries his hand at breaking into the netherworld of the modern pulp fiction industry. Prone to perpetual daydreaming and lost in delusions of grandeur, this would-be author pounds out reams of melodramatic drivel, shaped by the formulaic style of his quintessential washed-up agent from hell. Yet despite his best efforts, the only organizations interested in his "gift", turn out to be a number of very... "clandestine" groups who aren't exactly focused on publishing manuscripts. Of these groups however, one is completely unlike any other organization on the planet. During a few "cat and mouse" games, this one unique team begins to attract some unwanted attention of its own. As it is about to be exposed however, it simply erases events from the memory of everyone – save one man ... as things suddenly begin slipping sideways across tangents in time. Through it all, this lone odd-man-out finds the world is... not quite what he thought it was.
