During football night at their favorite bar a group of contentious friends encounter a phenomenon that just might rewrite the rules of the universe. But whose universe? A man meets his perfect match but realizes, too late, what that really means. A couple heading home come up against an otherworldly threat in the high desert. A corporation struggles for spin control after unleashing uncontrollable damage. The family staff of a small hotel struggle to survive after a mysterious force changes forever how people respond to the outside world. A scientist, with only an experiment-weary monkey for company, creates one last test to uncover the secrets of space and matter. And a clean-up team tries to make sense of a vanished civilization from the dross left behind. Seven startling versions of the world ending - one for every day of the week.
