Premise[edit]

In the distant future, the human race has lost the sense of sight, and society is left to find new ways to interact, build, hunt and survive.

Meanwhile, blind warrior Baba Voss' wife gives birth to a set of twins. To his tribe's amazement, the twins can see.

As word spreads, it gets the attention of a clinical queen who will stop at nothing to get her hands on the twins. In order to protect his children, Voss is forced to rely on his instincts and must rally fellow tribes to take down the queen and her tyrannical cult before they can capture the children.
