As the old ways of the nineteenth century fade, Out of the Darkness tells a story that touches on the themes and issues America will face in the new century that looms ahead.
It is a story of technology and its place in society. It is a story of violence, a doctor's responsibility to his patient, and a lawyer's responsibility to his client. It is a story of forbidden love, and a story of a timid, terrified young woman’s finding her courage. It questions humankind's ability and willingness to be a contributor in the quality and course of its own evolution.
Ultimately, Out of the Darkness takes a look at what sort of people will populate a new age, and what sort of people will, inevitably, be left behind.
