A world and a society that are rapidly falling apart. Unemployment, economic crisis, crime, environ¬mental destruction, politicians under attack, people eating out of dustbins, unemployment... Until Zero Hour finally arrives and History starts going backwards. A girl, three guns-for-hire, a group of scientists, a politician and his family cross the country over a year in a merciless manhunt. As the environ¬ment changes day by day, some try to stay the same and others search for who they really are. A timely book which reveals how the lines separating fantasy from reality, humanity from inhumanity, and dignity from submission are actually very thin indeed.
