An interplanetary conflict has left Kithri abandoned on a desolate mining planet with Eril, a shell-shocked pilot. A freak accident sends them back to a time when the world was lush and green, when an alien civilization stands on the brink of a war of total destruction. They must choose - to remain outside the conflict or to stand up for their beliefs, even at the cost of never getting home again.
