When Tierney and Patrick’s resistance-leading parents are murdered, the siblings are conscripted into a teenage fascist training camp run by their parents’ killer. The camp’s leader would like nothing better than to prove the virtue of his worldview by grooming the uniquely gifted Tierney as his successor. His daughter Sarah, however, is bent on subverting his plan, trying instead to draw Tierney into her effort to construct a more peaceful, loving social order within their war torn reality.
