BRIEF
PITCH &
SYNOPSIS

An Arctic explosion in our near present releases enough methane to send warming into a death spiral. By 2273 the only habitable place is the Arctic and life is dying out there. Time travel has been invented.  The autocratic Imperium orders soldier May to go back in time and save pacifist Noah from his accidental death to gain access to the White House. Her mission: she must assassinate President Tomlin to stop him from permitting the drilling that led to the explosion or they will execute her daughter Rachel in four days. Complications arise. Someone is out to kill Noah. May misses opportunities to meet Tomlin, and authorities are after her.
