    When an asteroid long ago predicted to cause a global mass-extinction suddenly appears in the sky, capricious seventeen year-old Gabbi Raleigh is forced to confront the stark realization of her own mortality. The sentiment is shared by Gabbi’s estranged aunt Margot, who returns unexpectedly after nine years without contact, determined to be reconciled with her dying younger sister before the end of days. The Raleighs are thrust into the moral dilemma of placing forgiveness before dignity, and wildly attempt to make sense of both global and familial chaos. Meanwhile, a therapist haunted by her troubled past receives a visit from a personal hero in a turn of events that just may set both their souls at rest. All have to wonder:
    Is fulfillment attainable? And if so, can one find it in just forty-eight hours?
  • The Way Things Work

  • The Trip Through Livingston
