When Time Runs Out

filled star filled star filled star Star half-filled star unfilled (83)

The world is on the brink of catastrophe. If we lose hope in a better future, what are we left with?

A young man is shooting people from a rooftop in downtown Helsinki.

An unsuspecting mother is confronted with a horrifying scenario she's powerless to stop.

A sister can only watch events unfold from afar.

Over the course of a day, one family fractures and with lives at stake each member must examine everything that brought them to this moment. But this crisis goes beyond their small lives; Aslak is not the only boy on a rooftop with a gun today. He is part of an international group set on stopping environmental disaster by killing as many of those they deem responsible as they can.

Can a desperate mother reconcile her complicated feelings towards her son and reach him in time to stop a catastrophe? This is the story of lives on the brink and finding hope in the face of despair.
