Two innocent orphans, Maiky and Alyssa, are trying to survive in a world overrun by war. The ongoing war has left the children scarred for life. With a shortage of food and potable water, the children try to hide in a run-down house, but the raging war is catching up on them. Maiky and Alyssa are forced to escape from their shelter and have to navigate the ruins of a bombed city full of crumbling buildings. Maiky and Alyssa are continuously confronted with patrolling soldiers, emaciated bodies and civilian casualties. Alyssa and Maiky are looking for a place which will make them to feel like children again, a SafeHaven. It seems they will never be able to escape the war, but they keep clinging on to hope.
