In a future wracked by environmental catastrophe and social instability, physicist John Renfrew devides a longshot plan to use tachyons - strange, time-traveling particles - to send a warning to the past. In 1962, California researcher Gordon Bernstein recieves the message as a strange pattern of interference in an experiment he's conducting. Can a new future arise from their communication?
