Long before the roots of history, there was a magnificent continent in the Atlantic. The continent was torn by generations of wars and its people had been stricken by natural disasters and starvation. Tieh, Lakushi, and Bois are three wanderers in this bleak world, looking only to survive and preserve what they can of their humanity. Searching for water they come upon one ruined town after another. When they finally reach a populated city, they find no rest inside. Even the dead have their own cities and here they are more prosperous than the living.
