A dead body is transported to the bottom of the sea by a deformed sailor, chased by an agent of the infamous Evol-A eco-terrorist group ... The regent of a decaying empire accuses his son of high treason due to a mysterious material known as nitroplasma ... Two Brazilian girls and a boy run away from home with the aim of infiltrating the immense industrial pole of the Mega-Trench of Cuiabá to experiment with audio-drugs.
The story deals with the theme of the adaptability of the planet and the human being, under the incessant blows inflicted by the Anthropocene and Capitalocene in a choral and multi-perspective manner.
