the star basketball player at his school, is worried “they” might

is worth the price of abandoning her real dreams. Andy, for his part,

Or can it? Because it turns out the future is hurtling
through space with the potential to wipe out life on Earth. As these
four seniors—along with the rest of the planet—wait to see what damage
