Set in the heavily industrialized Houston Ship Channel, Catalyst is the story of Kevin Phenix, a young engineer, who faces the most important decision of his life after an explosion and fire kills three co-workers and rips his world apart. In the aftermath of the explosion, Kevin must come to terms with his inability to save those who died and more importantly, to deal with the greed of a corporate culture whose policies and actions not only allowed the accident, but likely caused it.
Catalyst is a story about finding the important things in our lives and explores the fundamental questions that we all must answer; questions about our character, our actions and how those actions shape our future.
