After a robbery with his brother goes wrong, Joseph Kamal is thrown into prison. As guards and inmates violently clash around him, the young man tries to adapt to his new surroundings, wishing for this nightmare to end…

A massive cataclysm changes everything, allowing him to escape the hellish situation as he flees towards a life of Robinson Crusoe-like solitude on a farm in the prohibited zone. But, even when the alternative is dire, can a man really be an island unto himself?

Driven by unwavering tension and remarkable lyricism, this groundbreaking novel peels back the psychological layers of devastating loss and self-renewal.
