ONE HUNDRED YEARS AFTER THE BIG WET...
A century ago, a disaster known only as the Big Wet destroyed society as we know it. Half the world is now covered by poisonous, rising oceans. What dry land remains is a broken, infertile world of hard ground and harder living.
Into this world steps Michael, a scavenger who roams the wasteland, trading what he can salvage from the ruins. But Michael's latest find will change his life for ever — a machine that talks in a forgotten language, supposedly giving directions to the fabled land of A-Ree-Yass-I, where mankind's downfall began.
