Residents of the small town of Chester’s Mill located in Maine lead a calm measured life. However, something strange happened once – a huge transparent dome with a diameter of 10 miles appeared over the city. Everyone who was in Chester`s Mill can no longer get out. Moreover, no one can enter the city. Soon, electricity goes out, and supplies of gasoline, medicines and food are melting before their eyes. Curiously, no one – or almost no one – can understand the cause of the dome and how long it will remain. Now, the residents of Chester’s Mills and their stranded guests are forced to organize a new way of life.
