In a cold, insensitive future, Simeon Allis struggles to come to terms with an existence he doesn’t understand. Every decision is made for him, and his family and loved ones no longer have a place in the world. The State provides everything, and the Sandmen ensure conformity.
Hideous inventions, the Sandmen ensure obedience of the citizens of the clinical world in which Simeon lives out his controlled life, alone. But he is different than the others… for he has memories.
One terrible night, lost in the deserted streets of the crumbling city, he stumbles upon the hideout of those sworn to overthrow the ruling elite. After he joins in their mad scheme to overthrow the State, Simeon slowly finds out the truth… and discovers exactly who he is.
