New York air traffic controller Dylan Branson is getting ready to celebrate his 30th birthday soon. On the day when it is told in the morning news that a supernova outbreak occurring 30 light years from Earth can be observed in the sky, a streak of inexplicable events begins in his life. He sees a dream in which at the Central Station in New York at exactly 2:22 a person begins to shoot with a revolver. At exactly 2:22 in the afternoon, at work, an inexplicable stupor engulfs him for several seconds, and only because of that he manages to prevent a collision of two aircraft at the last moment. Colleagues cannot understand what happened, Dylan himself is in shock, and the leadership removes him from work for the duration of the trial.
