Sometimes, it’s best to expect the unaccepted.

In a near-future Nigeria, where wind turbines harness “clean” energy from a natural disaster raging in the north and nutritious super grass carpets the big cities in the south, Anwuli Okwudili has never really felt…natural. And that’s putting it lightly.

Anwuli’s parents spent most of the days before she was born praying to the Lord Jesus Christ for her peaceful death because even in-utero she was “wrong”. Despite it all, today as a grown woman, she audaciously embraces all that she is: A woman with several major and necessary body augmentations.

And then one day she goes to her local Abuja market and everything

                                                         just

                                                            goes

                                                              wrong

Once on the run, she meets a Fulani herdsman who’s also on the run and the race against time across the expanding deserts of Northern Nigeria begins. In a world where all things are streamed, everyone watches the “reckoning of the murderess and the terrorist” and the “saga of the wicked woman and mad man” unfold. This fast-paced, relentless journey of tribe, country, destiny, body and the wonderland of technology revels in the fact that the future sometimes isn’t so predictable.
