Brooklyn, New York, United StatesA two-story tenement building on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. It's been one month since the tenants boarded up, and the apartment is starting to look, feel, and smell like it. Trash piles into the kitchen, bugs linger in every corner, and the food is hardly edible. Light barely seeps through the boarded-up windows as each room is lit by candlelight.
Recent Past1953 - An alternate history of the early Cold War.
After the threat of a biological attack during the Cold War leaves the residents of a NYC tenement building trapped inside, a timid, troubled teenager must fight against the self-appointed leader in order to save the tenants.
Sixteen-year-old Joanna has been living with her overbearing Aunt Martha in a low-income NYC tenement building ever since a violent outburst left her fighting a feeling she can only describe as the “darkness.” Little did she know that weeks after moving in, a biological threat from the Soviet Union would leave the building boarded up and the tenants locked inside. It’s been one month since they were first sequestered. With food dwindling and Martha’s controversial role as leader expanding, Joanna realizes that she must face both her darkness and her aunt in order to save the tenants. But can she take on the leadership without letting the darkness take over her entirely?
