On the planet Mictlan, a small colony of stranded humans struggles to survive despite a diminishing birthrate and a high incidence of physical abnormalities. The cultural conflict engendered by the discovery of the mummified corpse of Mictlan's now extinct former inhabitants forces the human community to reshape its moral principles to accommodate a bold & troubling solution to their problems.
Descendants of a long-marooned group of humans struggle with mutations and infertility, and if a cure cannot be found they are doomed to extinction.
The colony's doctor, Anaïs, herself suffers from a sexual deformity. However, her world is turned upside down when she discovers that the preserved corpse of a long-extinct native race carries exactly the same deformities as herself.
What is the connection? And can she find the answer to this mystery that has reached back from time to haunt both her and the colony struggling to survive against impossible odds?
