In a world governed by ancestral powers, Xist is a winged beast that embodies the purity of light. He’s a boy, and yet his thoughts don’t seem to belong to this world. He is brought back to earth by the terrifying spies of “Hadden”, a monstrous deity anchored to matter, chief of the City of Glass, who wants Xist to reveal to him the secret to being loved. But Xist knows well that love cannot be obtained through force… A dream-like journey inside the dynamics of power, set in a strongly dualistic world: on one side lies the light of good, on the other the darkness of evil.
