One hundred years after the Big Wet, the Earth is broken-a barren and infertile world where the few remaining survivors struggle for survival. When Michael, a scavenger bearing strange gifts, arrives at the shanty town of Providence, the effects are devastating. Now Michael and the townsfolk must cross the deadly wasteland to Newbegin, a nearby city that has sprung from the desolation; but will the city's power-mad dictator welcome them with open arms or a closed fist?
