A fictional novel about the state of a decaying, demoralized, and usurped city, and the people who rise up to reclaim it. The story follows several characters as they navigate their lives through the left-behind corners of the City. The first person narrator is a homeless man who has abandoned the ubiquitous system of capitalism and now wanders the alleys and the streets of the City in search of a better way. Along the way he encounters other lost wanderers who share similar views. The unlikely revolutionaries must first battle through their own entrapments before they can stand united against the enclosing darkness.
