In 2021, science reporter Alex Whitmore finds herself reporting live from the control room at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, home to the Large Hadron Collider. It's the day of the experiment, the culmination of a century's work by physicists attempting to uncover the fundamental nature of the universe. A new power source will make the collider capable of probing deeper than humanity has ever seen into the fabric of space time. But in attempting to recreate the Big Bang, the LHC sets off a catastrophic sequence of events of which Alex may be the sole surviver. She awakens, alone inside the control center where only moments earlier she'd been surrounded by peers, scientists and onlookers - all of whom are now dead. Follow Alex as she makes her escape from CERN only to realize the devastation is far worse than she feared, into a world forever changed by the pursuit of knowledge.
