An old fable tells us of the ants and grasshopper; the ants pass the summer toiling in preparation for the winter, while the grasshopper sings and plays with little thought to what is to come. In the story, the grasshopper is turned away when he comes begging for food, in some versions he is forced to play music to earn it. What would really happen once winter arrived, would the grasshopper truly let himself go hungry?
The world as we know it has died, but as they say ‘life finds a way’. It is now a world of tremendous abominations, an existence of ants and grasshoppers. Young Gillian Parker is alone in this world, on a mission, taking a leap of faith in search of something that may or may not be there. Whatever the outcome, she is willing to do anything to see her quest to completion; she has nothing left to lose.
