Five characters--with gifts they do not fully understand-- are mysteriously brought together to battle growing pockets of darkness throughout the world: Brenda—the street-hustling tattoo artist who sees images of the future. The Professor—the atheist ex-priest ruled by logic. Andi—the professor’s brilliant-but-geeky assistant who sees inexplicable patterns. Tank—the naïve, big-hearted jock with a surprising connection to a healing power. Daniel—the institutionalized ten-year-old who can see into the supernatural world. The team is flown to Hollywood as honored guests to watch the taping of the new TV pilot, Live or Die, the Ultimate Reality. Little do they realize the depths of darkness they are about to enter -- a darkness that, unless they stop it, will soon spread across the globe.
