The new Earth is a motionless planet that is nearly incapable of sustaining life, devastated by disease, nuclear warfare, geological and electromagnetic alteration or obstruction, and a major subtraction of natural resources, and as a result, the human race stands on the brink of extinction. There are only a few inhabitable destinations in this shattered world; the rest will guarantee zero chances of survival.
After the first few signs of the cataclysmic sequence of events become apparent, seventeen-year-old Meredith Hintermeister and her family are forced to evacuate from their decimated neighborhood and embark on a treacherous journey to the nearest safe haven to start anew with the handful of survivors that defeated the odds.
As the world continues to crumble around them, Meredith becomes increasingly concerned about the condition of her family, that they might not survive the journey. Facing geological upheavals, climate changes, kleptomaniacs, heinous gangs, and dysfunctional communication systems, the Hintermeister family optimistically treks on, struggling to defy the odds. However, an unanticipated confrontation with a heavily armed band of seasoned delinquents may ultimately denote their gruesome expiries.
Filled with hopelessness, confidence, grief, disgruntlement, romance, adventure, and suspense, "Immobility" tells the eye-widening story of Meredith Hintermeister's perilous journey through the chaos of a dying planet.
