In 2027 A.D., the end of humanity seems in the offing. Chaos and violence are spreading and a child has not been born for eighteen years. Then, there is a glimmer of hope in this raw and very realistic looking future fantasy when an African refugee turns up who has become pregnant as if by a miracle. A disillusioned London idealist is forced to join a precarious attempt to bring her to safety. Action and commitment with a touch of biblical symbolism.
