The series is set in the not too distant future and centers on residents in the small town of Chester's Mill, Maine who find themselves cut off from the world by a mysterious barrier that surrounds the town. Big Jim Rennie is the ruthless town councilman, who's son Junior is holding local waitress Angie against her will thinking he is protecting her. Joe is Angie's brother who meets Army veteran Barbie, a man on an enigmatic mission in town. Deputy Linda Everett is engaged to a firefighter who is stuck on the outside of the dome. Phil Bushey and Dodee Wheeler run the local radio station, and hear a terrifying intangible voice on a rogue frequency. The sound cuts out and they then hear a military frequency about a potentially dangerous plan being considered by military forces outside the dome.
