Robbed and left for dead, young coffin maker Eisen de Torquiam drifts in from the haze of a desert sun to a small oil town held under the sway of an enigmatic preacher, with the firm intention of setting up his own business. Eisen quickly finds himself the target of spurious rumors and robbery attempts, as well as the ire of people who see him as a meddling outlander, a blasphemer. The "other."
As he struggles with his business and the aggressive denizens, a storm gathers in the desert in the form of the bandit who left him for dead, Kavaria Kallista; a name everyone in town fears. When the outlaw kidnaps a young woman from a ranch outside of town, the coffin maker begins a single-minded quest into the depths of the roiling wasteland to confront the madman.
Friends and enemies join him on a descent into utter madness, culminating in a near apocalyptic denouncement of revenge and blind faith, all under the watchful purview of a mysterious man with a white umbrella.
