    • Synopsis
    • Warren Moore, a Nobel Prize candidate, plans the kidnap of a group of famous and brilliant scientists during a meeting in a Starbucks café at the very top of a skycraper. He needs them desperately to solve a “problem”.
      And suddenly, the “problem” surfaces.
      Dominating the skyline of an American city, the people in the cafeteria witness an uncanny event: a worldwide alien invasion. It’s the Armageddon, the end of everything, the extermination of the human race. The town around the skycraper is burning, buildings fall like trees in a forest and the destruction is complete.
      But Warren has a secret plan.
      He knew about the invasion.
      Warren Moore suffers from premonitory dreams, and he saw all this in his dreams; he knows the origins of the creatures that are destroying Earth; they are things from a parallel Universe, and he also has dreamed how to stop them…
      Now he will have to make a plan. With the help of the people he has kidnapped. And every second counts; the creatures are aware of his existence and his premonitory powers, and are looking for him with the worst purposes.
      So in the middle of Armageddon itself, the destiny of mankind will be in the hands of 5 people, in a cafeteria, at the top of a skycraper.
