Fifteen year-old Jake is found by a search and rescue team, clinging to his surfboard after a devastating tsunami strikes his hometown of Perth, Western Australia. Orphaned and alone, he is sent to London to live with his Aunt and Uncle.
As one of a handful of survivors, Jake understands he is lucky to be alive, but his escape was prompted by a prophetic dream he had about the tsunami less than twenty-four hours before it struck.
As he struggles with his new life in England, he begins to realise that, far from the dream being an isolated coincidence, this gift will return again and again, giving him the power to see future events and save lives. With the help of some unlikely friends, Jake must choose to play God and avert the bloodshed mankind faces in the near future, culminating in a final showdown with the forces of evil on the Rock of Gibraltar.
