Have you ever considered what it might be like to go back to another place or time? If you could what event or events might you like to participate in or be witness to? How might you, a child of technology, adjust to a world without indoor plumbing, public transportation, conventional foods like ice cream/pizza, and many other conveniences so easily taken for granted.
That’s exactly the predicament US Marshal Devon McKenzie and NYPD Chris Gates find themselves in after a routine prisoner transport from NYC to Washington State goes horribly wrong as they pass through the countryside of rural Nebraska canvased against the night sky of the Aurora Borealis.
The fascinating tale In The Town Time Forgot: Turbulence begins in New York City when U.S. marshal, Devon McKenzie and NYC Detective Chris Gates end up transporting a well-known prisoner along the interstate. The two officers have never gotten along and are squabbling when their prisoner is forcefully removed from them en route during a night when the Aurora Borealis is at its brightest.
The van they are driving is wrecked and the officers are injured. They spend the next three days surviving in an isolated wilderness area. When they come upon a farmer, he takes them back to his house, where they are shocked to discover they have been transported back in time to 1869 Nebraska. The farmer and his family wrongly assume the two are married, so Devon and Chris play alone until they can figure out what happened how they can get home.
