On the Altierra compound in Texas, young T dreams of the internet returning so she can be a Youtuber and document her generation. When a crisis expels a group, she joins the exiles on a trek across the broken land. This group faces constant danger as they search for safe harbor - and possibly the answer to the question of what happened — at the rumored New Eden. Along the way, the crew experiences a strange and yet recognizable landscape. They encounter an authoritarian farm, anarchist Firestarters, feral children, Sad Disneyland, and ruined hometowns.
