The world has come to an end. Nature has taken back possession of the planet, covering it in a blanket of jungle. A new society, the “Institution”, is attempting to thrive from the ruins of the old world, striving to reinstate a sense of order. But not everybody accepts to succumb to a process of civilization. We will tell the story of the free spirits of the jungle, who are striving to find their place in the world. Yaya is an intelligent, 15 year-old, girl of mixed ethnicity with an uncouth character who takes care of Lennie, a big and tall man in his twenties with a mental disability.
