"Let's not die today. Not even to make things easier for our parents."
Five very different students at a private high school are brought together under mysterious circumstances, and just barely escape a building collapse. Little by little, they piece together the belief that their parents are working in tandem to kill them all. Is it true, and if so, how did the plan emerge and what are the parents' motives? But most important, how can these teenagers save themselves? The urgency builds when one of the five dies, and the others flee together. This unlikely group gradually bonds as they struggle to stay safe against all odds.
