A normal day at work turns into a manís worst nightmare when the country is plunged into dark and dangerous times within a matter of minutes. He needs unconventional skills and resources to mount a daring and deceptive plan to retrieve his daughter who is away at college. Heís hundreds of miles away and it seems like thousands. Itís a trip he planned for, but a trip resulting in some unexpected and deadly events as chaos grips the country.

   There are more enemies than friends along the way and the journey becomes a fight for their lives. Their hope to make it home safely and move to a safe haven ends quickly. A rogue militia group has a different idea in mind. Both family and friends find themselves battling for freedom.  

   Without technology, society begins to collapse. Without the basics to survive, people change. Without rule of law, itís every person for them selves. They have Dark Days and Rough Roads ahead of them.

  The U.S. Government has just confirmed North Korea could launch a nuclear tipped missile. They said it would not be reliable, this is what could happen with an unreliable launch. But again, its just fiction. Or is it?
