In 2038, earth reaches a cosmic tipping point and enters a mysterious universe. To perpetuate the old order, people hide behind a gigantic wall and engage in wars. In this dystopian wonderland, Denise walks on thin ice to believe in her future, spurred on by Tom — a poet, and caretaker — who promises that a renaissance is on its way.
