    Synopsis


    In a toxic future flooded by dead oceans and poisonous gases, twin siblings Keeto and Elize become the target of an otherworldly predator in their quest to save Elize from their mother’s fate.

    Not even Earth’s world government, the Unification, can protect them. In fact, its own secret desire to be the first to locate the twins summons still others to the hunt — others whose true intentions remain hidden.

    Will Keeto and Elize find the answers that they seek in time? Or will their questioning lead them down a dangerous path where treachery, lies, and deceit reside?



    This is the epoch of Nemecene, where the real answers are waiting for you to discover them...before they discover you.

     


    Transcript



    Countless centuries ago, in the year 2048, a new Epoch began.  An epoch when Earth decided to right the wrongs of her greatest nemesis and trap humanity in a persistent environmental nightmare that has become their grim reality.  

    Carefully, she guides her body through the underbrush, its tentacles claiming the hem of her coat as it floats over the landscape, reminiscent of the countless small hands begging for time as they sink into the void.

    Soon, the Ministry hounds will come... (Nathruyu in her head)

    She forges on into the valley, unconcerned, for the branches, like the timid, freely bend to her sway. The distant tranquillity assures her that her silhouette is not plainly visible against the steep violet tapestry. Her choice of dress has succeeded in masking her well, leaving her immediate approach unencumbered, and despite the drop in ambient heat, her legs have managed to garner speed. She attains her destination with a few minutes to spare and borrows the light to move swiftly in the shadows of the village.

    “Hello? Anybody there?” (Keeto, tenuous)

    The desolate track blows a cloud of dust with her every step, relinquishing but a hint of her trail, each puff a reminder of a past she remembers quite vividly, a past bathed in the powdery residues of an experiment gone terribly amiss.

    It was early morning when the storm hit. Although it appeared to breach the threshold without warning, it was known in advance to some.

    “No disclosure. We must keep this private.” (Sothese)

    Regardless, the extent of the carnage eclipsed all expectation.

    The tempest grips her. Motionless at the fringe of the plaza, she struggles to centre her spirit. She feels powerless, her body frozen in the face of a stealth airborne demon, as she watches her children gasp for their last breath and slump lifeless to the ground, in a puddle of malignant cinders, their twisted forms blanketed in blonde ashes.

    “How long do you think you have to live?” (Nathruyu)

    The features of the terrified swarms hopelessly scrambling to outrun the accelerating poisonous mass live locked in her soul, and the bravery of the ones she failed to protect, crushed in the panic, further strengthens her will. Her limbs, burdened with the weight of child after child sinking helpless in her arms, desperately groping for her, ache with regret.

    Kneeling in the midst of a field of torment, she offers peace to the brave and comfort to the fearful. Her eyes weep the tale of her anguish, and her flesh becomes stone in its path. As the storm’s assault disperses, all that persists is the tarnished wreckage of ignorance and deceit.

    Tell me where they are. She must not find them first.” (Sothese)

    “Ahhhhhhhhh."

    Repeated attempts at stabilizing the delicate ecosystem through geoengineering had failed.  And now, Earth has attacked the very soul of life as they know it, water, in a desperate move to cleanse herself of their madness.

    “Not that way. It’s not safe.” (Caroline)
