After both their lives go up in smoke, a woman and man reunite to see if love can exist in a post-catastrophe wasteland. But sorting through the layers of memories and experience that separate them gets continually interrupted by the persistent drone of a pair of deceptively innocent World Powers. In a world intent on promoting destruction, what does it take to find true connection?
