The Millgrove talent show has the same performances as any other small town: a cheesy ventriloquist, off-key karaoke singers, and bad dance routines. But after Kyle Straker is hypnotized as part of his friends mysterious new act, Millgrove will never be the same again.
When Kyle and the other volunteers awaken, the entire audience, the entire town, and possibly the entire world, is frozen still. Telephones, radios, televisions, and computers no longer work: only a strange language flashes across the screens.
When everybody suddenly wakes up, it becomes clear that they have changed and that Kyle is now an outsider, one of the 0.4.
Is Kyle still under hypnosis, or is this chilling new world real? Will he awaken from a dream to roars of laughter, or is there something much more sinister happening?
One of the last of his kind, Kyle records his story on a series of cassette tapes, describing the shift, and what it means for the future of mankind.
