Wow, 2015 just flew by didn't it? I feel like December just started and then boom, all of a sudden it is New Years Eve eek!!! Where did the time go?

FEAR THE DAYLIGHT
Without warning or explanation, an extended solar flare bombards the earth and doesn't stop, making each day a battle for survival.

To get there they must each travel through ravaged towns and over hundreds of miles of charred earth, and must do so under a sky waiting to kill them with every sunrise.
But with the world's population dying off and humanity getting more and more violent as the days pass, their paths are destin…
