Civilisation is on the brink of collapse. The people are controlled with Big Lies, mass surveillance and brutal suppression.What price would you pay for freedom?
Oric and his lover Belkis are part of a rebel band devoted to liberating people all over the world from totalitarian oppression. When Belkis is brutally murdered, Oric’s world is torn apart. Haunted by the thought that he could have done more to save her, he continues the fight for freedom that they began together. But Oric knows he doesn’t have long left before his nemeses, the self-professed Saviours, return for him too.
As the Saviours forge new alliances and grow ever stronger, Oric must stay one step ahead to complete the mission he was born to fulfill. Here, in the darkest hour, Oric will discover that even the smallest of gestures can bring the greatest gift to humankind – hope.
