The series takes place 400 years after the human race has been exterminated by aliens. It follows Ezra, Abram, and Feena who have been reconstituted from the dead by an alien faction for the purposes of repopulating human civilization. The group cultivates their relationship with the alien restorers while dealing with conflicts from those genocidal aliens which destroyed humanity.
A reality a lot closer than most would care to indulge.
