After a devastating war, the Italian government decides to create some safe areas where thousand of selected people have to be deported in order to safeguard the values of Western society. In one of these zones there are only three people who live in a huge apartment building, where nothing is missing but everything is in decay. The building is a large magnetic monolith, a kind of primordial god who does not let them get away. They feel it as a safe womb.
The narrative goes on at two levels: The present, set in the Zone, and the life of the past in the previous world. What’s out there over the Zone’s fences? Someone will try to find out.
