|Plot Summary of Dust|
Dust is about a fictional environmental doomsday in modern times. As ecosystems all over earth begin to fall apart and ordinarily passive animals turn ravenous, Richard Sinclair and the other scientists of the "City of Dreams" work to try and unravel why the earth is falling apart. It's a race against time as crops fail, cities fall into anarchy, and exotic diseases claim thousands. Something has been causing mass die-offs throughout geological history, and unless the scientists of the "City of Dreams" can stop it, humanity may become yet another footnote in earth's history.
