The setting is a post-apocalyptic future, water is a scarce good and a single law rules the world: The law of the jungle. The Kid is a young man who has grown up alone in a tough and cruel world mainly with the inspiration of a vintage comic as well as other past-times objects which have become his particular obsession. Together with some colleagues that he will find along the way, he will fight against Zeus and his wild pack, the self-proclaimed rulers of the land.
