Abel wanders the wastes, scavenging to survive as he searches for a reason to live.
He discovers a young boy suffering the same addiction that almost killed him.

When the boy vanishes following a run-in with the gang, Abel doesn’t know if the kid was taken or if he chose his old life. Abel can’t just walk away — he’s finally found something to hold onto.
Risking everything he has left, he must journey through the dead city to find out the truth…
