When the alien Legion arrives, bringing chaos and destruction with them, Rachel, a small-town DJ, takes shelter in the radio station with a small group of survivors, vowing to keep information flowing as long as they can. As the Legion war drags on and the voices over the airwaves start to dwindle away, Rachel and the others must face a difficult decision: do they keep broadcasting in the hope that someone’s still alive to hear, or abandon the station — and hope along with it?
