Abstract:

It is 2035 and people subsist in a desolate netherworld after the eradication of 99 percent of the earth's population, a holocaust that makes the planet's surface uninhabitable and people's destiny uncertain. A desperate group of scientists secure a reluctant volunteer, James Cole, to embark on a dangerous mission back to 1996 in the hope he can unravel this nightmare before everyone is dead. When he arrives in 1996, he meets Jeffrey Goines, the unstable son of a renowned scientist, and Dr. Kathryn Railly, a psychiatrist and author who eventually believes his prophetic warnings of the world's fate. Questioning his own sanity, Cole and Railly struggle to unravel the mystery with two clues: a haunting childhood memory and a series of puzzling symbols from a group known as The Army of the Twelve Monkeys--Summary taken from Baseline, 3/14/96.
