It is the year 274 AD (After Darwin), in a world that has completely rejected religion and a regime rules which forbids faith of any kind. Instead, it is Darwin who is The Saviour, and only in science is everyone allowed to believe. Raul and his sister Arym are cared for by the state, having never known their mother. It is a strict but simple life, until Raul begins to have doubts about the regime and rebels against the unwavering and unquestioning beliefs of those around him. Will Raul allow himself to be 'cured' of his doubts and become an unthinking believer like his sister, or is there another way to survive?
