What if the origins of humanity is a myth? What if children have nightmares of being eaten by monsters because they once were? What if imagination is shifting windows into past lives helping us remember a past we want to forget? What if there is something asleep within our earth that is about to wake up?

AWOL Independent Member of Federal Parliament Max Switch, his 12 year old son Larry and his abducted 10 year old daughter Emma, are having dreams, bad dreams, and they are changing.

What is the connection between the Ilya Incident of 1950 and the ticking Switch time bombs of 2020? Why does an Australian soldier slaughter an entire village in Pakistan? How do white doves of peace become black eyed demons of death? Who ate the children in Brazil?
So many questions and a literal race against time to find answers.
Meanwhile a monster is stirring. And it's hordes are very hungry.
