It is the Future, and human life is on the brink of extinction. In the middle of it all, two women journey across a decimated country, on the run from… well, everything, really. Resting in a forest clearing, they read a Book about a family that can never die. And for the first time, they begin to open up to one another, to chip away at the wall that stands between them. And they keep coming back to this Book, this story that they can’t seem to shake. But it’s just a children’s story. It’s fiction, a fantasy. People can’t really be immortal. Everlasting. Perennial.
