I was a girl once, but not any more . . .

A young woman, barely more than a girl herself, must learn to survive with a child of her own, in a world which seems entirely consumed by madness.

As she navigates a landscape of terrors and trials, can she find a place of safety within a society blinkered by mistrust and denial?
