What Happens When The Numbers Run Out?
In the Year1959, as part of their school program, students were asked to draw pictures of life as they imagine it in 50 years and place it on a time capsule. Lucinda, an odd child writes a long string of numbers instead of drawing a picture.
In 2009, the capsule was opened; student Caleb Koestler gets Lucinda's "drawing" and his father John (Nicholas Cage), an astrophysicist and a widower, takes a look. He discovered that the dates of disasters over the past 50 years with the number who died was what the "drawing" predicted. Three dates remain, and all coming soon. He investigates, learns of Lucinda, and looks for her family. He also fears for his son, who is also starting to hear voices and who is visited by a silent stranger who shows him a vision of fire and destruction. What's going on?
Probably one of the 2012 possibility.. but it happened in 2009.
An A-Ok thriller....
