A young man lost in a frozen, dying world, desperately fights to inspire hope in a fellow survivor while maintaining his own wavering hopes.
Elaboration: It has been sixteen months since Daniel Tam's last summer. Each day since then, the sun has set sooner, the world has grown colder, and his family and friends have withered and died before him. Left with only the company of his increasingly distant and hostile brother-in-law, he finds comfort in documenting the last of his people's darkest days with a scavenged camera.
Still, even as the world dies around them, the constant threat of vicious raiders or thieves looms, and soon the sickness that gripped the souls of all the other survivors turns brothers inward against themselves, where they find warped, frigid reflections of who they thought themselves to be.
