Karen Ann MacNeil, a pretty 17-year-old who lives in Vancouver, lapses into a coma one cold December night in 1979. In her wake, Karen leaves a group of confused friends who travel through the next two decades emotionally hampered by her loss. By the early 1990s, these friends are working in Vancouver's thriving film and TV industry, primarily on The X-Files and for a special-effects company. These shows alter their perception of what is real and possible.
In 1997, after 18 years, Karen awakens. Almost immediately, the world undergoes profound, bloody, and terrifying changes that Karen and her friends experience -- and then must try to make right.
