When Jael’s husband falls ill, there is little she can do to help him. In the post-apocalyptic desert, there are no medicines or treatments. So, after years of watching him suffer, Jael makes the hardest decision of her life.
She strikes her first match.
Jael leaves the smoke behind and flees into the desert with only one plan: to find a place where no memories haunt her. What she doesn’t plan for is Agi. An orphan on a journey of her own, Agi slowly forces her way through Jael’s walls, and the two begin traveling together. But the desert is a harsh place. And no matter how far she runs, Jael can’t escape the things she brings with her.
