For years, Sheriff Holston, has upheld the rules of the underground silo which houses the small community of men and women under his protection, until the day he does the unexpected: He asks to leave.

 

As his actions throw the community into chaos, an unlikely candidate is chosen to take his place: Juliette, a mechanic with no training in law enforcement, whose only talent is fixing broken machines. Now she must fix the silo she calls home, and in doing so, will learn how badly it is broken, mechanically and socially. The community must suddenly face its past and acknowledge the necessary impossibility that has waited at their very doorstep.

Revolution.
