The end of the world started quickly. First came the flu, which took many lives and overwhelmed the medical system. People realized their confidence in the governing power was misplaced as the rich and privileged took advantage while the rest of the population fought to survive. Then came the storms: earthquakes, tornados, and hurricanes. One disaster after another resulted in fear and panic that escalated to violence and insanity.
Some found solace in blaming the failure of humanity while others turned to God. Still others ignored the mounting horror, calling it fake news. Those people claimed the planet was just going through a phase and that all would soon right itself. Add global warming to the spreading illness and massive natural disasters, and it appeared Earth would soon be uninhabitable for those who remained.
Unbeknownst to many, a group of world leaders begins meeting in a covert location. Together, they work with a supercomputer in the effort to at least save the memory of human society. This secret computer and an alien contact now offer a way to escape a dying planet. However, there isn’t room for everyone, not even in the digital life, so how are the special few chosen … and at what cost? The world is ending; how far would you go to survive?
