SYNOPSIS: For generations, the kids of Greenfields have played, explored, and told stories in dedication to Betel, a legendary dying star. The night that Katy Woodland and her neighbor “Camel” Jennings are finally going to join in the tradition, she unexpectedly passes away. And what’s worse: The star has finally erupted putting the Earth in the path of an unstoppable beam of light. Following in Katy’s footsteps, Camel turns the tragic and uncertain night into the biggest adventure the town has ever had.
Laura "StarSister" Jennings (Supporting). Eleven years old and a charismatic storyteller, Laura has just found out an exploding star will end the world during her lifetime. Rather than panic, she starts swapping fantastic stories about that star. After no time at all, she gets all the kids in town playing it with her.
Tom "NightBrother" Woodland (Supporting). Eleven years old, Tom has two great passions: star-gazing and adventuring with his friends. On the day he finds out a supernova will one day end the world, he takes them on a journey to his secret spot, Mount Yonder, so they can watch and wonder.
Jill "MotherGirl" Tompkins (Supporting). Fifteen years old, Jill and her boyfriend, Paul, are a power-couple. Members of a local band, they are the youngest members of the town's Punk scene, and well on their way to becoming local legends. She always knows when something new is happening in town, and on the day the world starts to end she knows exactly where to go.
Paul "Paul" Bixby (Supporting). Fifteen years old, Paul and his girlfriend, Jill, are a power-couple. Members of a local band, they are the youngest members of the town's Punk scene, and well on their way to becoming local legends. That said, he constantly finds himself a tag-along for Jill, so he is often a little too eager to show off and make himself known.
