"In the aftermath of mankind's final war the few survivors scratch an existence from the ruins. This is no brave new world. From the shattered fragments of a once great civilization crawl the Rats - to claim the domain as their own. The city and its pitiful human inhabitants finally belong to them. The people have become prey, the hunters the hunted. But now the traveller has arrived and he is no victim. In search of his past, he has come to take back the dream of life as it was before. But in the city the only dreams left are nightmares."
