Description


"Choose The Sun" follows a rampant non-viral pandemic that first grips young adults and places them into a coma. The mysterious disease eludes medical experts, who fail in the face of the nearly instantaneous onset of the disease. While those victims who survive are in perfect physical health, most find themselves in severe shock, depression, and PTSD which impair their ability to transform their lives as they struggle to rebuild their world. Lawrence Williams, a university academic dean, and Edgar Marten, a physician and genetic scientist, anchor a team to improve victim rehabilitation and prevent suicide as a solution to ending misery.
