The year is 2062.
Climate change and pandemics have reshaped the world.
Global temperatures soar and storms ravage continents, leaving even the Nordic region depleted of fresh drinking water.
The people of Earth have been split. The wealthy few have fortified the big cities and monopolized water sources, while the rest must survive or die in the desolation outside. I live in comfort on the inside of one such city. But by night I smuggle fresh water to the less fortunate on the outside.
Caught, and sentenced to death for treason, I manage to escape into the unknown world of the outsiders.
As I'm dying of thirst and exhaustion in the hostile wilderness of the real world, a mysterious young woman comes to my rescue.
She offers me a second chance: to join her tribe of freedom fighters. It is time to rise up and face my demons.
Confront the dark legacy of my own people. Become an agent of change.
