Five hundred years after the "Doom" that destroyed present-day civilization and sent nations to their graves with the "glowing death", the world is pictured as a barbaric society composed of primitive tribes that shunned all things connected with the twentieth century.
This is the story of sixteen-year-old Carl who set out to break down the ignorant taboos that were destroying a priceless heritage and crushing all hope for the future of humanity.
