In a future medieval world, after the collapse of our civilization, man has repeated all the same mistakes again, and installed a new system of law based on false science and superstitious beliefs. Worst of all their deviances now, is anyone who dares to consume or even touch the sweet-tasting ‘Chisa’ flower. Once caught, they are permanently banished from the village, and made to live a life of solitude and poverty. Most prone to this deviance are children – known by elders as ‘vessels for evil’ – since their natural curiosity makes them prey to temptation. Yet these rejected children, left to their own devices, free and as wild as the wind, are discovering the true power of this plant and its teachings. Its sap contain what most adult fear: a vision of the truth. They have learned so much that some villagers even accuse these children of witchcraft.
In the future, hundreds of years after the collapse of civilization, mankind has returned to a stage comparable to that of the Middle Ages. As was the case back then, archaic structures have grown up that are characterized by steep hierarchies, superstitions and hypocrisy, while scientific knowledge and enlightenment are frowned upon or simply ignored.
Behavior deviating from the norm is severely punished, especially as regards the tempting chisa plant, a small red flower that grows in the mountains. The doctrine states that their juice is the blood of the devil, and whoever tastes of their sweet juice or even touches it is outlawed. This is also because it puts the consumer in a trance that gives them a vision of true reality, which is interpreted as witchcraft.
Children, whose natural curiosity makes them susceptible to violation, are particularly affected by this moral claim. So suspicious, they are regarded as “vessels of evil” and closely guarded, and sinners have to live in a camp in the wild, where, in addition to bitter poverty, they have to make further sacrifices that serve the not necessarily noble purposes of the community
