A stranger emerges out of a brilliant dawn. His appearance is rough and dangerous. His touch starts to change the world.
A factory breaks down and the sea erupts. A prisoner escapes and runs to his victim. A youth is stopped with her knife. A Covid nurse drags herself from her shift. A young woman faces pregnancy while an old man faces death. And the town where they all live is being ripped apart.
Some of the people are happy, while others are scared. Is the stranger there for good or bad? And is everything all as it seems?
