Set in a dystopian future, the struggle for power, glory and the claim to the city shatters the bonds of brotherhood, leaving two men lifeless. The new king proclaims one brother a hero and the other the usurper, leaving his limp body lying in the street, as an example to those who dare act against the state. The citizens of the city avert their eyes due to fear, turning instead to their new leader who vows to restore order to the war torn city. But the sister of the slain young men, cannot look away, she breaks faith with everything she has ever known in order to set things right at any cost.
