Film rights sold to 20th Century Fox
In a ruined and toxic landscape‚ within a giant underground silo hundreds of stories deep‚ lives a society full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them. Then Sheriff Holston‚ who has unwaveringly upheld the silo’s rules for years‚ breaks the greatest taboo of all: He asks to go outside. His decision unleashes a drastic series of events. His unlikely replacement — Juliette‚ a mechanic with no training in law‚ is about to learn how badly her world is broken.
