What will you do when the United States is invaded?
In the near future, an army of a half million Russian, North Korean, and Middle-Eastern soldiers launches a coordinated offensive, invading the United States with unparalleled precision. They call themselves the People’s Liberating Army — the PLA.
Throughout history, all regimes have eventually failed: the Western Roman Empire, the Greeks, the Ottoman Empire, Russian Communism, and so on. It’s only a matter of time before America’s societal and political structure collapses. Its demise is already underway, with extraordinary economic stratification and tyrannical authoritarian administration at the helm of the government.
May and Winston Sparrow live directly on the PLA’s route to sack Atlanta and gain control of the airport. The Sparrows, married fifty years, don’t intend to flee the looming invasion. Like many others in the tiny town of Johnsonville, Georgia, they dig in and make preparations. Winston, a retired structural engineer, devises a simple strategy — build a false wall inside their small barn and wait out the offensive, hidden inside. They have enough supplies to last a while, but to the Sparrows’ horror, instead of just passing through, the PLA converts their property into a headquarters, and their secret sanctuary becomes an unwelcome front row seat to the atrocities of war.
