Since the disaster of 2040, the world is preoccupied with its own survival. The primary goal is to preserve humankind and help humans reproduce. Due to deteriorating fertility levels, the central government legislates a law that forces all 18-year-old men and women to donate their sperm and ova to a global genetic pool.
Onyx, a lost 26 years old woman, ventures out on a brave journey of finding her biological offsprings, that were artificially conceived from her ova when she was just 18 years old. She goes against laws and conventions and discovers that primal maternal instincts know no borders. In the process, she discovers much about herself as well as about the questionable system, which invades the most intimate places, despite its noble goals.
Onyx feels that the only way for her soul to survive is by defying the establishment and following her uncontrolled urge to discover the fate of her biological children.
