It was an average Tuesday in New York when a group of strangers all stepped onto the Five headed for Brooklyn. They didn't realize though, that once the train left the station, they were going to begin the biggest adventure of their lives.
Transported to an another world by a benevolent group of beings for mysterious purposes, the survivors of the crashed train must make a harrowing journey through hostile lands for their only chance at getting home. A priest, a nursing student and a police officer lead a group of New Yorkers from all walks of life with only a curious alien monk as their guide and protector.
To survive, they must learn to trust each other, to adapt to an alien planet and most daunting of all, they must outwit the forces that want them utterly destroyed.
