Michael Church, a financially challenged student, nature lover and loner, suddenly finds himself fabulously wealthy after winning one of the largest Canadian lotteries in history. Contrary to typical behavior associated with new found wealth, Michael opts for solitude. With the guidance of his mentor, Thomas Barrett, he constructs a high-end hunting and fishing lodge in the mountains of central British Columbia where he intends to lead an idyllic life in an environment that he loves with a minimum of human contact. Temple Parker, a brilliant bio-chemist and avid environmentalist, has succumbed to a dark psychosis and burning hatred for humanity. It is his steadfast belief that the only solution to save the planet Earth from certain doom is to annihilate the bulk of the human population. With the assistance of his carefully chosen followers, he orchestrates a plot to accomplish his mission. A plot that is simplistic in nature and nearly flawless. Not wanting to fall victim to his own diabolical conspiracy to annihilate humanity, Parker’s final task is to find a haven where he can observe his handiwork from a safe distance. Coincidence provides him a solution as Parker finagles his way into Michael’s mountain retreat. As a global pandemic ensues, Michael Church finds himself a reluctant provider of sanctuary to people seeking an escape from the rapidly spreading wave of death that has been described by the news media as the opening of “Pandora’s Box.” A wary and conflicted host, a psychotic madman in hiding and a group of city-dwellers, band together to survive an unstoppable wave of death circling the globe by seeking sanctuary in a nearly inaccessible mountain lodge.
