It is the year 2250. The ice has melted and sea levels have risen. Cape Town has disappeared and Table Mountain is now an island inhabited by the Tekkies, who cling to a lifestyle long gone in the rest of the world and keep their island for themselves. But their resources are running out. They look to the land that once was Africa - known as Out - where a few remining people have managed to survive the massive drought by turning their back on 23rd-century technology and following a simple lifestyle based on ancient knowledge. They are the River People. Rain, a princess of the River People, and Saa, the lion cub she cares for, are seized by the Tekkies. They want the knowledge of Rain's people. They want to know how to harvest the rain. She is to be part of a terrible ceremony to restore the balance of the world…
