 In the year 2020, a nuclear war, perpetrated by a ruling entity known as ‘The ARK,’ devastated Earth, laying over half the planet to waste. Today, in 2029, the ‘future’ is dark. Every 6 to 18 months, a mushroom cloud envelopes a newly discovered resistance movement located in one of the world’s once-great cities. These underground pockets of humanity are hiding out around the globe as The ARK actively seeks to wipe all of them out. This totalitarian regime is criminally insane. Its ruler, The Anchor, and his Superiors, have no concept of good or evil, right or wrong and simple human decency. They are ruthless and rule the world with an iron fist.

That is until the ‘All-Seeing Army,’ committed to a Blind War, rises against them. These soldiers literally can’t see and this handicap has become their greatest strength against an enemy they believe is truly blind–blind to the devastation they cause. Not only are their other senses heightened to the point of giving them superior fighting skills, but they also represent the only hope for a human race with a peaceful, true and just vision for the future. As one of the last resistance movements on Earth, they cannot fail or the entire planet is doomed.

Into this clash of titans, a sightless orphaned boy is thrust. He (Iori) is kidnapped by this All-Seeing Army and trained for many years as The ARK gets closer to discovering their whereabouts. The All-Seeing Army believe Iori is the One-Eyed King of their Land of the Blind, destined to bring about the end of the world for those able to see. As Iori develops his unique talents, he’s conflicted about why he fights–the only girl who’s ever loved him, Bethlehem, whom he was forced to leave behind, remains in his heart. Will Iori fulfill this sinister prophecy? Will the would-be One-Eyed King turn his back on humanity and lead this powerful mystic army against the world he was once a part of?
