half-life (n.) The time required for one unstable element to decay and transform into another.In Diablo Valley, California, a complacent community struggles to adapt to a changing world where looming global chaos threatens to alter life as they know it.Nineteen-year-old Pam Wu remembers her father with longing, since he flew from their lives forever. She and nine-year-old Timothy remain with their mother, Saura, who buries the shame of her husband`s desertion by losing herself in the lustful attentions of her younger boyfriend Wendell. Still, Saura can`t conceal a bitter nostalgia for her youth, when she had love and purpose to motivate her.Pam`s only friend Scott Parker, a restless Korean adoptee, battles to jar his fundamentalist parents out of their denial of his sexuality, inadvertently entangling his closeted boyfriend Jonah with inescapable repercussions.Wendell`s powerful presence threatens to tear apart the Wu family, even as Scott`s machinations backfire, jeopardizing things for himself, his parents, and Jonah. As cataclysm looms, lines are crossed, secrets long repressed begin to emerge, and all are left to face their own selfishness and intolerance... until Timothy discovers a way to alter everyone`s reality.
