Set in a future far-removed from a global nuclear catastrophe and a past barely on record,
small utopian enclaves exist peacefully whilst unknowingly surrounded by relentless chaotic realms dominated by ecological disasters and a population of bestial marauders. When a young, innocent monk falls in love with a rare half-wild survivor of the wastelands they must traverse seemingly endless desert and radioactive forests in flight from his doomed monastery triggered by the coming of the wild people.
Through mutants, treacherous terrain and the results of radioactive gigantism, they're captured by a mysterious albino huntress, a trapper of wolves and bears with a hidden past - whilst a lone journeyer battles the wilderness on his own pursuit for a remote El Dorado; The City of Gold.
This is a quest for survival against the odds. A humanistic story, a story of Us, and although futuristic, it is a fable for our time.
