Owen and Jamie are very average twenty-somethings with the not-so-average responsibility of saving the world. While locking up school one day, Owen Malloy is approached by Melvin, a time-transient civil servant from the future, and offered the position of Caretaker of the World and all its Population. All global disasters have relatively small initial triggers. Owen would be given details of these triggers and deal with them as and when they arise. He just needs a sidekick. His best friend Jamie, though reluctant at first, eventually accepts the position on the promise of Owen's scooter and so their adventures begin.
