Ice caps have melted. Most people have left earth to find a future among the stars. Some groups of people were not allowed to go or did not chose to go. This is the story about some of those groups.
We will follow the people of the island of Albion, formerly Great Britain, much reduced by the risen water levels and a group who live at the other side of the Channel in Franka near or in a big city called Harbour city.
Electricity was fried when the Exodus happened, but some groups already have found other ways to generate power. As most of the old knowledge was only available in digital format, it is not accessible anymore, besides some old scripts and through wisdom passed on from generation to generation.
Albion has quarantined itself to stop contamination with the people of the mainland who are thought to still revere technology, the latter being forbidden on the island.
