About Down From Heaven
Set during a pandemic and food crisis, down from heaven explores the events that lead to the collapse of civil society, revealed through the lives of the wealthy Braumbachs and their former gardener, Cheater, now a member of a renegade security force. Under house quarantine in the basement of their luxurious home, the Braumbachs now rely on Cheater for their very lives. Laurel Braumbach, their sixteen-year old daughter, acts as go-between and enters the dark and convoluted world of Cheater, discovering in the process, some startling revelations about herself, and the man they have become dependent upon.
