The Petrelli clan descends upon Coyote Sands, the site of the government's abandoned project Icarus, which went badly awry in the 1960's.
It is our nature to protect our children. For each generation to pass on their cautionary tales to the next. So it is with the myth of Icarus, the legend of a boy who fashioned wings from feathers and wax, daring to fly into the heavens. His father was fearful and warned Icarus to be careful. Begging him not to tempt fate by flying too close to the sun. But in the end, the boy couldn't resist. His waxen wings melted from the sun's rays. And deep plunge... to his death.
