    El futuro. Después de un ataque proveniente de algún lugar fuera de nuestro planeta, la humanidad abandonó las ciudades y se refugió bajo tierra. Allí la raza humana vive durante generaciones en las que acaba perdiendo la facultad de ver y, además, olvida que alguna vez la tuvo.
    Así, cuando una serie de personas empiezan a recuperar esa facultad, el gobierno bajo tierra no hace otra cosa que tacharlas de enfermas y éstas se ven obligadas a huir y volver a la ciudad dónde una vez habitó la raza humana.
    Pero donde estos rebeldes creen poder encontrar un remanso de paz y un nuevo futuro, encontrarán terribles revelaciones sobre el pasado de la humanidad y una amenaza que llevaba latente durante generaciones.

    The future. After an attack coming from somewhere outside of our planet, mankind abandoned the cities and took refuge underground. There the human race has lived for generations, losing the ability to see and also forgetting they ever had it.
    Thus, when a number of people begin to ‘gain their sight’, the underground government condemn them as sick and they are forced to flee and return to the city where once lived the human race.
    But where these rebels believe they can find a haven of peace and a new future, they will find terrible revelations about the past of humanity and a dormant threat that has been hidden for generations.
