• Follow a youth as he teaches his people to hide within the form of their enemies.
• Watch a Mothertree encourage the beginning of a new race of beings.
• Follow a group of survivors who find a way to survive against all odds.
Heroes and betrayers, the honorable and the dishonorable, all become a part of the battle for the Homeland.
