2058. 50 years ago, a number of unknown structures fell upon our world, changing the skyline of the major cities of the planet. These starships, soon renamed as “The Rocks”, never showed any sign of life and were soon integrated as part of the urban growth accompanying the world’s social and economical development in the years. Years later, scientists would make an incredibile discovery: the rocks seemed to originate a signal from their interior. According to our time criteria this signal was codified as a countdown pointing at a specific day and time in the year 2058. Today, we live the last hours of that “Last Day” through the eyes of two lovers, Sam and Lisa, desperately looking for each other again before the world that we know might end.
