Jeff Mendoza was a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles. In 2097, he obtained a grant from Crosstime Traffic to live in an alternate devastated by nuclear war in 1967, in the hope of discovering the root causes of the mysterious war. His wife Sarah and their daughter Liz, a budding historian, accompanied him to their base of operations in the nation-state of Westside, near the UCLA library, which might contain clues to the precise break-point. Unfortunately, a war with the neighboring kingdom of the Valley broke out and disrupted everything.
