The last humans eke out their existence in a vile place, a giant landfill. Is this limbo a penance, or the aftermath of a horrible accident? Their history has been washed away by strife, and all visions of the future curtailed by survivalist woes. Yet hope springs eternal from the alchemy of life. A new being emerges from this chaos.

It is less a cautionary tale of some dystopian future and more an allegory for the precipice over which we are currently dangling.
