In this anime-inspired futuristic tale, the human population has reached its maximum sustainable size and has retreated inside a massive, enclosed complex to shield itself from the pollution of the ravaged wastelands outside. Zero population growth is maintained by a baby lottery that allows each winning couple to bear a single child. When one particular couple conceives twins, the thought of ending one of the baby’s lives is unbearable so the parents bribe a doctor to secretly deliver both children. The secret persists for 12 years, then the authorities come to forcefully claim one of the children and expel him into the bleak wasteland outside. His survival will depend on his ability to adapt to the brutal conditions, coexist with a ragtag band of other outcasts, avoid the bloodthirsty clans of expelled criminals, and befriend the gigantic alien beasts that strike fear in all living things. The secrets he discovers in the barren wastelands will either offer salvation for his world or lead to its total destruction.
