Ascension preview


When awkward trainspotter Tim stumbles into the wrong flat during a power outage, he interrupts a cult ceremony to summon an alien prophet who will save His believers before earth is destroyed at midnight. Things go from bad to worse for Tim when he inadvertently 'outs' the intended sacrifice, and so becomes the new victim whose demise will open the cosmic portal. Tim has to use all his wiles – and draw on his nerdy knowledge – if he's to escape with his life!
