In the heart of a Dallas summer, a menacing figure descends onto the concourse of the Mellows Subway Station, dragging a veil of darkness behind him.

And there, shrouded by the gloom, the malevolent Mr. Wicker lurks, a spectral sentry whom none shall pass.
No one dares to cross beyond the veil, and no one knows if they’ll ever escape.
Warren Dodd, an ex-con hoping to be reunited with his family after seven years behind bars, finds himself trapped in the company of a cluster of equally unlucky citizens—an insurance salesman with a chip on his shoulder, a duplicitous attorney, a busker in mental anguish, Warren’s wife and child, and a Chinese national running from her past.

And with the veil drawing ever closer, time is running out …
