In 1962 in the midst of the Cuban Missile Crisis, a plane crashes into Calvin and Helen Webber's yard.

Mistaking the blast for a nuclear one, the Webbers move into their elaborate bomb shelter to wait out the radioactive fallout.

In the shelter, now a sort of time capsule, Calvin and Helen conceive and raise their son Adam until he is 35.

When Adam is sent by his parents above ground to get supplies he is completely lost until he meets Eve who helps him navigate his new world.

Soon the literally sheltered Adam falls for this bitter, cynical, street-smart woman who grew up in a bleak Los Angeles.
