Earth as we know it has changed. Since the Nuclear War, it has become an unrecognisable place. Fresh air is a thing of the past, real food has been replaced with 'simulated meal drinks', and nobody can safely venture outside without a respirator. In Anglia, one of only two countries still standing, society has been divided into two social classes: Electi and Treb. The Electi rule over the Trebs, treating them with discrimination and hate. To be a Treb means experiencing the worst schools, homes, and jobs - and, of course, living in fear of what the Electi will do next.
As children of arguably the most prestigious and richest family in Anglia, Archie and Eva live a life of extreme privilege. However, everything is perhaps not as perfect as it seems - when one has access to anything they could desire, it brings attention to the things in life that can't be bought, like friendship and family. As the siblings learn more and more about their father, President Ignatius Impero-Regnum, they begin to question if their life of luxury was worth the costs that came with it...
Meanwhile, twins AJ and Eloy, miraculously born during the height of the infertility crisis, are living in a poor Treb community. Unfortunately, their Treb status means life is not easy for them, but luckily, through thick and thin, they have their family and friends to rely on. However, when their best friend, Mizuki, discovers some extremely confidential files, everything seems to unravel, and their lives transpire into a whirlwind of chaos.
This is a story involving unlikely friendships, budding new romances, and a fight for equality and justice at the heart of it all.
