In a world where grieving the dead is illegal, Isla Daniels must fight against her society's norms and discover the truth behind the plague that killed her best friend.


Let us be the first to congratulate you on taking the first step in your mourning process. 

Consider this leaflet your all-telling guide to the Regulated Grieving Standards, created to guide you through your bereavement with your dignity intact.

As a Class C griever, you are not burdened with attending the funeral of your friend. Instead, you have the privilege of mourning them in the privacy of our government Regulated Support Groups. Through years of study, we have perfected the grieving process, and you will forget about your friend in no time.

You're welcome! 

Over the weeks, your resolve will be tested, but it is of the upmost importance that you carry on with your life as normal. During this crisis, we must all do our bit to preserve the world as we know it, and we have confidence that you will remain strong. 

Do it for you.

Do it for your friend.

And above all, do it for your country.
