Description

In the distant future, the human race is almost extinct, and the promised land of Nanak stands as a sole reminder of man's past. Ruled by a Judge and divided over an heir, the city falls into a bloody war of succession. The battle ends with a group of Nanakites defeated and exiled to the land of Shur. Fueled by a religious prophesy about a savior and a return to the Promised Land, the Shurites hold fast to their belief of an inevitable homecoming. Yet, one thousand years pass and the prophesy remains unfulfilled. Shur develops into a city controlled by two opposing ruling bodies: a dominant theocratic council led by the Elders and a renegade secret guild of protectors led by the anti-religious Joshua. Undercut by Joshua's efforts to weaken the grip of the Temple, the Elders are blessed with a miracle in the form of lost scriptures. The ancient writings proclaim Joshua's closest friend, an influential councilman, as Shur's savior, which reignites religious fervor. Obliged by friendship, yet understanding the need for social reform, Joshua finds himself torn between his loyalty and his convictions. On his actions hinge the fate of a people who have been waiting one thousand years for a return to the Promised Land.
