For three years, black clouds have blotted out the sun over Our America. A five-minute break in the clouds over a small town gives the whole nation hope… and compels a desperate government aided by a corporate conglomerate to sequester the town’s residents in a warehouse facility where they are made to recreate their actions at the cloudless moment . . .over and over. . . in the hopes of once again summoning the sun.
At once an impressionistic flip-book of modern small-town America, a story of one family strained to make huge decisions, and a stern reminder of the power of the natural world, The Summoners clicks and whirrs through the world of its characters hoping to find salvation in the tiniest detail.
