Her father, Rex Templeton, Chief Elder of the isolated citizens of Canamith, is convinced that the two-thousand-year-old prophecy is coming true; the end of mankind. Lila fled Canamith years ago to pursue a teaching career. Was she justified, or was it the biggest mistake of her life?
While Lila frantically searches for answers, Templeton’s followers are preparing to seal the door on a myriad of tunnels within the Mountains of Canamith to provide a haven from the devastation…
As 12-year old Billy Callahan excavates the Negev Desert with his father, an earthquake sends Billy sprawling into a crevasse, where he touches a metallic orb, left here by the original inhabitants of Earth millions of years ago.

The aliens release Billy and task him to convince the modern-day world that we must avoid repeating their mistakes or life on earth will perish.
