Fynn, a tinkerer-inventor, travels through time to the future to escape the political turmoil of the present. The future he finds himself in is far more bleak and dangerous than he imagined, but after discovering his granddaughter, Maya, in the wasteland he struggles to discern what’s worth fighting for.
