Summary
In a future London of 2027, Theo, a man losing a fight with his own despair, finds himself caught in the middle of a desperate attempt to deliver the world's only pregnant woman to a mysterious group who may be able to discover the answer for a plague of global infertility and environmental degeneration. Along with his activist ex-wife Julian, Theo and the expectant mother stumble their way through an array of battling forces as military, dispossessed masses, idealists and cynics struggle over the dwindling resources of a now seemingly-doomed civilization
