2053, the post-apocalyptic West Ireland. Logan Hartnett, the charismatic leader of the Hartnett Fancy gang, has ruled the city of Bohane for many a year, and doesn’t intend to let go of power anytime soon. There are challenges though: his long-time rival returns to the city after long exile, a competing gang from the destitute Rises in the north begins to beat war drums, and his own subordinates have started to scheme. Will he manage to retain his power, or at the least to keep his head on his shoulders? And does the city of Bohane, enamoured with the lost time and divided between several clans, have a future?
