What would happen if the United States weren’t so “united” anymore?
We take for granted that the forces holding this country together are stronger than those that could rip it apart. What would it look like to see all the seams unravel at the same time? And what would it take to make that happen?
It’s been six months since the inauguration of the conservative and deeply divisive President Pound, and the country has been on the brink of civil war. Protests orchestrated by both the left-wing Urban Rising Movement and the right-wing Reconstitutionalists (Recon) have become an almost weekly occurrence, and a brutal mass shooting at a top university has rocked the nation.
Troubled ex-journalist Cassandra DaCosta mysteriously discovers a muffled audio recording which seems to implicate the Pound administration in the mass shooting. When Cassandra leaks the audio to the public, the match is lit on powder keg tensions, and it sets in motion a chain of events leading to the fall of the American Republic.
