Noah Willowby has struggled with mentally tormenting recurring dreams, lies, and questions since he was ten years old. As his life evolves as well as the world around him, he finds himself in the brutal dichotomy of an apocalyptic world - a world with only one leader. This such man is Jack King, and after a rescue on his part, Noah is captivated by the man as well as the city he has built - the last city on earth. Adapting to an unsheltered and uncensored city where creativity is outlawed, Noah is captivated by the discovery and story of the strange and jaded Dreamers. Noah develops inscriptive and twisted allegories as to why the world before him ended, and this carries his change up until his death as his reverence for Jack King turns to hatred and resentment as he loses everything he has in the world.
