In the blink of an eye, the small Texas town of Harper Springs is flattened by the worst tornadic system to ever hit the area. Homes are demolished, trees are uprooted, and people are left for dead.

Taking cover in a cellar with his son, Ryan Gibson narrowly escapes the storm and gets separated from his wife. He hopes that help will come fast - his child is severely injured and the crippling weather pattern rages on, making them pawns in Mother Nature's game.
Weeks pass with no sign of another human being. Tornadoes continue to hammer away at the already ravished land. Ryan wonders why they have been forgotten. Basic survival skills set in - their food rations get smaller, their water intake less, and their limited resources will soon be gone. With his son's fading health and his wife still missing, he will have to make a decision soon - leave their shelter and risk death, or stay patient and hold out hope that a rescue team is on the way.
A harsh truth will soon be revealed - the tranquil way of life in Harper Springs will never be the same.
