Twins Summer and Winter live alone on a remote island, sheltered from a destroyed world. Until a man arrives who will reshape their lives...

Identical twin sisters Summer and Winter live alone on a remote island, sheltered from a destroyed world. They survive on rations stockpiled by their father and spend their days deep in their mother's collection of classic literature - until a mysterious stranger upends their carefully constructed reality.
