 In 3010, humanity lives in city-like spaceships orbiting far above Earth's toxic atmosphere. No one knows when, or even if, the planet will be habitable again. But faced with dwindling resources, government leaders know they must reclaim their homeland . . . before it's too late.

Now a hundred juvenile delinquents are sent on a high-stakes mission to re-colonize Earth. After a brutal crash landing, the teens arrive on a savagely beautiful planet. Confronting the dangers of this rugged new world, they struggle to form a tentative community and to get over their dark pasts. In order to survive, they must learn to trust - and even love - again.

After a nuclear war spread out, only few of the population managed to escape and now three ships make up the Colony;

Phoenix- The rich and powerful.
Walden & Arcadia- the lower ranks, who are supplied on limited rations, with stricter rules and suffocation.
Curfews are reprimanded, strict rules and punishment are enforced, more and more people are being confined and trialled resulting in death if found guilty for all over 18, the juveniles are pending until retrial on their eighteenth birthday.
