In the last city on Earth, far below the radioactive wasteland, the survivors of the war have constructed a bottomless urban cityscape filled with layers of skyscrapers and mazes of overlapping roadways. Automaton servants fulfill the desires of every citizen. They clean their homes, police their streets, and share their beds. Bio-engineered organs replace the failures of human nature, keeping people alive indefinitely. Genetically modified pets entertain their children. Food is manufactured to the highest quality imaginable. Every wish is granted.
As long as they can afford it.
Those unable to pay the exorbitant prices set by the rich, die in the streets. Their lack of technology disconnects them. Their lack of medical care weakens them. Their lack of food starves them. And when they turn to crime in order to survive, they're sentenced to death.
Hope no longer exists.
But against seemingly impossible odds, an unlikely hero will stand up against an establishment built upon suffering and corrupted by wealth. He will remind the poor, the weak, and the destitute that they should never give up and they should never surrender, because in the city of Nottingham, the war is just beginning.
