"In Saskatchewan, when I couldn't fall asleep, I'd watch the moon and think about how across the country and over the border, you were probably out on a rooftop beneath the same moon. You were the first person I enjoyed the moon with. Every other time, I was alone."
The Kraang's plot to take over New York has succeeded. The turtles, Destiny, April, Casey, and Diaval have managed to escape to the outskirts of the city, but not without loss. With Leonardo gravely injured and their Sensei gone, the moods of the group are pessimistic at best. Their minds are stuck on the city they left behind, but they know that they can't go back. Not yet.
Now, they have to get used to living in April's family farmhouse; cleaning, training, and cooking for themselves. Of course, the lives of the turtles and those near to them are never normal. There are plenty of new mutants, both friend and enemy, lurking in the moonlit shadows of the forest around them, making their lives all the more interesting.
All the while, they're healing from physical and mental wounds, helping each other grow stronger, and learning more and more about the past, present, and even the future.
