Manhattan, 1929.

The City is on its knees following a devastating crash in the stock market. Thanks to the Prohibition, criminals are making a killing off illegal bars while thousands of honest labourers can't find a single day's work. And in the Bowery, a homeless war veteran hangs on by a thread.

Solomon Hart has never had much luck in life. With only the clothes on his back and a couple of coins in his pocket, just getting through a single day can be a struggle... and the harsh winter is not making life any easier. But when he finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, his life takes a dramatic turn-and not necessarily for the better.

Myth. Legend. Monsters. He'll meet them all in Elderland.
