It’s the story of a young girl called Orémia turning eight years old in 2299. Some events that happened 25 600 years ago, an era that has long been forgotten, continue to have an influence in this world and Oremia is about to make humanity enter into a new era with the help of a rebellious fox.
A polluted world
The world of Orémia is gray and men have little option to survive. The rising waters, the massive extinction of animals and air pollution have forced men to take shelter, filter air and artificially generate food.
When the last whale died, an unexpected phenomenon occurred: men stopped dreaming. This helplessness proved devastating. Unable to clean up their thoughts at night, men have ceased to have ambitions, to find creative solutions to their problems. Quickly, several individuals became confused, having too much information to manage for their cognitive abilities. Mental illnesses soared, humanity was on the brink.
The Junning, the Machine Order, feared for the end of humanity. The way he found to save them is "snugging". By plunging humanity into an alternative reality, machines are able to simulate sleep enough to prevent humanity from sinking. In addition, humans no longer have to deal with the depressing environment in which they live. By submitting to this regime, humans have accepted to put their fate in the hands of the machines.
Unfortunately, the wounds of the environment are deep and the Junning sees nature through a deforming filter programmed deep into its systems by its creators. Rather than leaving her alone and trusting her, the Junning forces her idyllic vision of nature, capturing animals to connect them to her network and directing them towards a very focused vision of what nature should be.
