When a wealthy man takes his own life attempting to restart a bizarre machine, a decades old government cover-up begins to unravel, pushing New York technology CEO Tom Hartger onto a course with destiny. Tom is joined by psychiatrist Gwen Pierce whose framework for clear thinking becomes surprisingly useful. Together the pair stumble onto a patent drawing for a machine that can "pull back the curtain" on the universe, but when a shopkeeper is murdered the importance of their find becomes all too clear. Tom and Gwen follow the trail to the cloistered sanctuary of Tuxedo Park, New York and former residence of Alfred Lee Loomis, a reclusive Wall Street tycoon who financed his own science laboratory in the 1920s. Tom and Gwen discover the whereabouts of key parts necessary for a mystic machine's operation but they aren't alone. A rogue FBI agent, Homeland Security, and an Eastern Indian billionaire are equally determined to activate their own destiny. The chase intersects NYC landmarks where each character discovers a deeper connection to the machine and surprisingly to each other. If the truth comes to light it could rock the foundation of mankind's belief about the nature of the universe and himself.
