The experiment called the Source devastated nature by destroying the electric energy grid and changing people into caricature like creatures out of a fantasy while others died. Many have died including those who have trusted weary former attorney Cal Griffen to lead them to the Source so he can shut it down so that this nightmare can stop. He searches for his sister Tina who changed to resemble a fairy and feels he failed his followers because some died. Still he has no time to mourn as his evanescent younger sister Christina the ballerina vanished to wherever the storm floated her like a bubble.
The journey for Cal and his pilgrims continue westward through deadly cities where the Source holds sway with magic that threaten to destroy the earth. Cal's band of followers, and other changed humans enter the dangerous Ghostlands reaching Mount Rushmore, the pivotal foci of the Source. The troupe faces their worst magically enhanced customized nightmarish fears in this last stand to save human existence on this plane; to succeed against the overwhelming powers of the enemy, they need Tina on their side.
