Reminiscent of movies like Gravity and books like Lord of the Flies and The Hunger Games, The Somnambulists will push a young woman to the limits of her mind and body to save mankind from a madman twisted by a glitch.
The last hope of humanity, the generational starship Mithrandir, cuts a road through the cosmos, heading for an Earth-like planet in a distant star system.
During transit, a malfunctioning hyper-sleep unit drives teenager Wesley Foxhill insane and ejects him from a 200-year-old fantasy utopia. The psychopathic youth wakes up the ship's full contingent of hibernating children, using the ship's robots to recreate his idyllic kingdom in the dark bowels of the Mithrandir.
Rosalyn Crane, the daughter of the ship's lead engineer, must rally the other children and stop him before he can jettison their still-sleeping parents into oblivion.
