Point of Extinction
Written by Cosette Ruesga & David Shecter

Jun. 21 – Jul. 7, 2019
100 years in the future after a super volcano destroys more than a third of Earth’s population, the fallout renders many of the survivors disabled. In the United States of America, the new government tries to rebuild while resources are running low. When President Geneva Winters proposes a law forcing the disabled to take a serum that is supposed to cure them, the suspicious opposition begins to question whether her intentions are pure or sinister.
