Nine years ago, five college students conceived a way to use atmospheric energy to predict mass acts of human violence. A tragic event ended the project, and team leaders Aiyana and Brian haven't spoken since. Overwhelmed with guilt, Brian has spent the years alone in his lab redeveloping the energy model.
