Honey, Birdie, and Blue have always been told about the 3 R’s: Be Responsible, Reactive, and Ready. That’s because they’ve grown up with a doomsday prepper mother who’s moved them into a secure compound community to wait for the end of the world. Now they have to keep their training a secret at school, as well as navigate the changing demands of their strict compound leader. When a lockdown at school prompts questions about their behavior from both school authorities and their loyalty to the compound, how will they be true to each other and survive? Is it the end of the world, or something more personal and more sinister?
