I was a girl once, but not any more . . . A young woman, barely more than a girl herself, must learn to survive with a child of her own, in a world which seems entirely consumed by madness. As she navigates a landscape of terrors and trials, can she find a place of safety within a society blinkered by mistrust and denial?
