Based on the novel by writer Josh Malerman, the story is set in the near future where a mother and her two children are trying to survive an imminent threat after a mysterious extraterrestrial force has led to the decimation of the world’s population. Five years after a mass suicide mass decimated the population, a woman and her two children embarked on a desperate and dangerous search for shelter. Nobody really knows what this monstrous force looks like, because anyone who sees it immediately loses its minds and sucks in horrible ways. Survivors protect themselves by covering their eyes, which limits their movement and makes them vulnerable to other dangers. In a world surrounded by monsters, Malorie must find the strength to run with her children in search of safety. To survive, the three of them have to make a dangerous two-day trip, relying on the mother’s intelligence and the trained ears of the children.
