After a nuclear war destroys most of the world, Australia is left in ruins. Struggling to survive completely on its own, a new leader rises and creates a system that will prevent another large-scale disaster from happening again: the Examination. This new system allows for those who aren't deemed worthy to be exiled, so only the best and brightest can live in the new Australia. Each year, those who turn twenty are sent to their Examination, where they will be given a series of tests on varying subjects, and if you fail, you're sent off. Aria Maurer, a young girl starting her tests, is just starting to realize how complex the world really is when something interrupts the Examination for the first time in two-hundred years. Can she fix this broken world or will she be deemed unworthy of living before she has the chance to change anything?
