Cold, cruel, and arrogant, Michael is very much his father’s son. Obsessed by stories of genocide, this pampered prince’s curiosity gets the better of him. Realizing that his boring life of luxury is holding him back from knowing what the world is really like, Michael sets out on a journey of self-discovery without any true understanding of what awaits him on the surface.
At first, his arrogance is enough for those first few steps, but that false strength quickly leaves him when confronted with the harsh new realities of life. Once on the surface, he meets mutated plant and animal life, encounters what is left of humanity, and begins to understand what it truly means to be human in this dangerous new world. It threatens to break him, to leave him with nowhere to go and no one to turn to.
In time, Michael will find his way and maybe even become something he had never thought possible: someone who deserves the many wonders of his life.
