In this slice-of-life story set in September 1979, we meet Laurie Caswell, a bookstore clerk at the Northbrook Mall. That Saturday night she goes to the movies with her boyfriend, Dennis Nolan. Later, they go to her house and share some booze. After he leaves, she has a vivid dream of the dying mall in 2021 and is shocked at the darkness that engulfs the future. Is it a dream, a nightmare, a vision, or a prophecy?
