Children's TV is usually wholesome entertainment that can be enjoyed by the whole family, but child psychologist Mike Painter thinks there's one show in particular -- "Candle Cove" -- that might not have been so innocent. No one seems to remember the 1980s show except for Mike, and he has ever-growing suspicions that it might have played a role in a series of nightmarish events from his childhood, including the disappearance of his twin brother in the summer of 1988. When he returns home to investigate what happened all those years ago, Mike finds out that it -- whatever it was -- may be happening again.
It's the near future in Los Angeles, and climate change keeps temperatures soaring, and water is as scarce as oil. Crime is so rampant that authorities only bother punishing cases of extreme violence, and even the city's last remaining good cop isn't immune from the chaos. Arthur Bailey's only hope for survival is to join dangerous femme fatale Grace on a twisted cross-country death race. The race's host is a vaudevillian nightmare, the drivers are homicidal deviants, and the last participant to arrive at each checkpoint has his or her head explode. Even the cars aren't typical gas-powered machines, as they run on human blood. When Bailey goes missing to take part in the race, his partner, Chris, leads an investigation to figure out what happened to him, and it quickly turns into the most deranged case of Chris' career.
In the not-too-distant future, Los Angeles has been invaded and occupied by outside forces, causing a rift between the city's residents; some have collaborated with the occupation, while others are rebelling and suffering the consequences that come with that choice.

Proxy Snyder, a cunning and powerful leader within the occupational government, offers Will the opportunity to get Bram back if he works with the invading faction. Will's decision doesn't sit well with Katie, but the couple risk their lives -- and their relationship -- to protect their family.
