Gasping for breath, Abe is washed up on the shore of an island in the middle of a vast ocean.  The Colonists find him and offer the best of their society.  But Abe thinks he can make things better in this world strange to him and at the moons’ total eclipse two cultures clash, with tragic consequences.
