It's been five years since the Biafran War ended. Ify is now nineteen and living where she's always dreamed - the Space Colonies. She is a respected, high-ranking medical officer and has dedicated her life to helping refugees like herself. Back in the still devastated Nigeria, Uzo, a young synth, is helping an aid worker, Xifeng, recover images and details of the war. Ify and Uzo are worlds apart. But when a mysterious virus breaks out among the children in the Space Colonies, their paths collide. Ify makes it her mission to figure out what's causing the deadly disease. And doing so means going back to the homeland she thought she'd left behind forever.
