    • Synopsis
    • The light of a candle shines in the dark. The bombs are falling outside, but the tiny shelter seems safe. Peter is there with his granddaughter Hope. Their world is falling apart. The little child, six years old, listens at the story that Peter is telling her: The Prophecy of the Ram.
      Twenty years later Hope is a young woman. She is a nurse at the Power Plant that provides electricity to the environment of Amber. After the great economic depression, the world did fall into a new middle age. The society collapsed and local warlords took control of the land. The Bull, one of the warlords, rules Amber. He rules also over many “outer colonies”, rural areas where he takes the wheat to produce the bio-fuel used in the Power Plant.
      Ram is a soldier, a Black Hood. He is in the outer colony A24. He has to restore order after a riot but he can’t. He sympathizes for those peasants that are starving even if they grow wheat enough to feed two colonies like that. When another squad of Black Hoods arrives and kills most of the rebels, he pretends to be a prisoner, saving himself.
      Hope is a member of The Rose, a resistance group that fights for freedom in Amber. His cell is found and they are all arrested. Her friend Finn is arrested with her. She considers him her best friend, he wishes one day to be considered something more.
      The members of the Rose believe in a Prophecy: one day the Ram will arrive to defeat the Bull.
      In prison, Hope meets Ram when she is called to dress his wounds. When she meets the man, whose name is the same of the Prophecy, who is a hero who fights for freedom, she offers him to help him escape if he agrees on helping them taking control of the power plant. Reluctantly, he agrees...
