In the not-so-distant future, humans live in big cities under protective glass domes which shield them from environmental pollution; similar glass domes lie over all cultivated fields and the few remaining forests on earth. Everyone knows this is the only way for life to continue on the planet, since life can only exist under those domes. Therefore Zois and his friend Kora, two twelve-year-old children, are shocked when they accidentally view a strange place on Zois’s mother’s personal communications device (PCD) screen. It is a lake with blue water that turns silver towards the edges, surrounded by shrubs and willowy plants with large wide leaves swaying slowly in sync, insects with transparent wings flying among them. It is a hauntingly beautiful place, and the oddest thing about it is that it is not covered by the usual protective dome!
