Centuries after the Nuclear War, a rebellion is rising and Renna finds herself at the heart of a Civilization hiding many evils.


Centuries after the Nuclear War, the Earth is an uninhabitable tundra, leaving the Civilization as the lone island on which there is a chance for survival. Renna, once a top Intellect, has grown disillusioned after seeing the Civilization's oppressive regime. Forced to confront her loyalties and reshape her identity, Renna must pave a new path for herself. When an Outsider appears, providing evidence that there is life outside of the Civilization, Renna takes a chance and forms an alliance with the Outsider, defying the Civilization and dares to stand up against it...and may find love along the way.
