For psychologist Tom Crandall, the city of Los Angeles seems to be going insane, plagued by a series of strange events that extend to his own life as well. Not only did his drug-addled brother, Nick, nearly jump to his death over a Malibu cliff, but he’s been blackmailing members of his wealthy family, including brother Paul, who is financing a movie by a mysterious company called Parallax Productions. Determined to find the truth, Tom heads to the surreal film set in the valley, where he meets Parallax head Gunnar Kelso, a former physicist with odd theories about power and human behavior. Though everything seems normal, something isn’t right. The more Tom digs into Nick’s breakdown, the more he learns about Parallax and the enigmatic Kelso. Parallax, it seems, has dark ambitions that extend beyond Hollywood, deep into the highest levels of government. Caught in a terrifying conspiracy that threatens his own sanity, Tom must find a way expose the truth before it’s too late.
