Kids gifted with strange powers have grown up under the thumb of the vicious and intelligent driver of the van Novia-Scotia. Seventeen year old Cola’s life in the van is shaken up when her older “sister” Rosaline has disappeared and she realizes Nova will stop at nothing to find her. What will happen when she does? And what will happen to Cola as she nears adulthood, the age when kids in the van seem to slip away?
What a self-assured debut. This certainly has the superhero genre trappings to pull in any listener but it's the dynamic of a volatile but intelligent mother figure trying to hold on to her brood of precocious youngsters, in a van road trip that never ends, that shines in this show. Whoever's writing this has got some mad observation skills because the comparison that comes to mind is Richard Linklater.
