Retired nuclear physicists, Robin and Hazel, have cobbled together a functional, if challenging life after the nearby nuclear power station they engineered melts down. Homemade yogurt and yoga see them through the days without regular electricity or potable water until Rose, an old friend and former colleague, shows up with a frightening request. The past and future collide in profoundly personal and ethical ways, as they must answer for the responsibility they owe to The Children. A timely and tantalizing look at the cost of climate change and what, if anything, does one generation owe the next.
