Product Description: Archaeologist Julius Gabriel has devoted his life to studying the Mayan calendar, a 2,500-year-old enigma that ends abruptly on December 21, 2012. Many believe this foretells the end of the world. Julius is convinced it's one of many pieces to a puzzle that could lead to the salvation of our species. He has passed on his knowledge to the only person who ever believed his theoriesóhis son Mick.
It is now the fall of 2012 and Mick is still haunted by his father's predictions. He's been committed to a Miami asylum for paranoid schizophrenia, and the dawn of his most feared prophecies is upon him.¬†¬† When inquisitive psychologist Dominique Vazquez joins the team at the South Florida Treatment Center, Mick finds a new listener for his warnings of the coming Apocalypse. What Dominique doesn't realize is that she is his last hope of saving humanity.
For the fall equinox is looming, and with it will come a rare galactic alignment with the potential to change life as we know it. It is the beginning of the end...
