"Moving, thoughtful... an accomplished and absorbing piece of work."
Gavin McGibbon, playwright
Ten years since the war began, a small group of survivors have banded together in a tiny settlement amidst a ruined city. Rowan, the camp’s de-facto leader, still dreams of finding one last pocket of civilisation, while Rosa has started preparing her young son Jed for a life of self-reliance, uncertainty and violence. When a group of mysterious, silent beings appear in the settlement, the group must decide just how much change they can learn to live with; and how far they will go to survive.
