The rats below are on the rise.
Separated by seventy years, Kahle Desireau and Eli Steiner are former military, still caught in the fight for survival.
One driven by love…
Kahle Desireau returns from the Bosnian War haunted by his childhood gift, seeing the "black smoke" - the auras of the dead and dying, for an attempt at a normal life.
- Meet the girl of his dreams? Check.
- Get a job in a factory? Check.
- Join a rebellion? Check.
…one consumed by desperation.
Eli Steiner has spent his life after World War I helping others. Then a yellow roadster comes to town with disaster at the wheel. The fields flake to powder beneath a relentless sun. The banks have stopped lending. And his small family farm will be caught in the tsunami known as the Great Depression.
With two futures on a collision course, seventy years is a moment in time.
