    It is the year 2121, and the Earth has weathered through the slow, gradual domino effects of climate change disaster - population has been drastically reduced. Four sisters gather at the deathbed of their controlling mother. Things take a darker turn when mother collapses and an unearthly visitor is a harbinger of things to come as they discover there are greater, more chaotic, universal forces at work in which they surprisingly play a role, in this post-apocalyptic, family-oriented drama where gods walk the earth with disconcerting agendas. But time is happening concurrently, and while the past informs the future, the present can also inform the past. Can the world be saved from total annihilation? Or will humanity reap the final gifts of what we have sown?
