For Suzie, James, and Timmy, it’s the end of the world.
And that’s before aliens invade Earth.
It starts in 1959 with three teenagers on a stargazing trip that turns into an evening of heartbreak, jealousy, and sexual confusion — and then giant wasps from outer space invade Earth and make things even worse. The teens need to put their feelings aside to survive the night. (These are teenagers we’re talking about.)
