"We're preparing for a polar shift that will cause a sudden climate change and change life as we know it forever."

Producer's note from Nick Weissman: "Both former soldiers, Paul and Gloria are a very kind and welcoming off-the-grid couple. While Paul tends to their 35 goats, 16 ducks, and four pigs on the property, Gloria happily dries corn in the double-wide kitchen while a venison dinner roasts in a nearby Crock-Pot. Together in this doomsday pod, they join in a feast with other members of the group as the Texas sun set over their humble home."
