College senior Stella Denton has very few prospects and even fewer suitors i.e. none when a gunshot wound to the head catapults her from 21st century Minneapolis to Jarmo, a real-life hunter-gatherer society circa 7000 BCE. Although Stella starts 'living sequentially' in both realities, she thrives far more in her ancient life. However, an impending war could also get her people slaughtered unless she takes immediate action to save herself and her tribe. During her dual-life journey, Stella draws the interest of Dr. Vale, an unappreciated, thirty-something professor of paleoanthropology, charismatic Chieftain Hari of the Jarmo tribe, and young Ashur, a prehistoric teenager in need of lessons in love. But when the time comes to make an irrevocable choice between the two, will Stella choose down-to-earth reality or the allure of the unknown?
