In the wake of ecological catastrophe which has left the Earth's water undrinkable, a young botanist scours the landscape in search of remedy. Scavenging resources and the maintenance of his journal make up the hours of his tedium. His solitude is only dulled with visits to his last remaining friend, a dying man with rambling fever
dreams of the past and a quiet pessimism for
the future. In a bitter, forgotten world
listlessness and delirium rule the day.
