The small town of Dyall’s Ford struggles to survive in a fractured future, cut off from the rest of the world by marauding gangs and ever more destructive bushfires, sinkholes, tornadoes, landslides, earthquakes, dust storms, blood red rain and other frightening phenomena.
As the natural catastrophes surge in number and ferocity, constant attacks from neighbouring tribes envious of their permanent water supply and abundant forests seals the town’s isolation.
The Voice – a cabal formed from the remnants of local communications infrastructure, government, police and shadowy ‘influencers’ brutally enforces their own interpretation of law and order. Of particular interest to the Voice are ‘greenie’ groups led by the self-styled Urban TERRArists – militant gardeners whose preached mix of Permaculture and Socialism make them a constant target.
Members of the Urban TERRArists keep disappearing, but the two factions dividing town argue if disappearances are due to Voice executions or another natural phenomenon that has recently appeared: mysterious portals glimpsing other worlds.
When Caylen and her boyfriend John are befriended by a prominent member of the Urban TERRArists they fall under the radar of the Voice. Threatened by the police and their enforcers the couple must make a choice: accept their planet is dying along with its people or more deeply engage with the struggle to turn around the cataclysmic future engulfing all.
