Amber Lump is a girl who feels completely out of place in our world. Stranded alone for days in her home because of a seemingly never-ending blizzard, she is forced to venture out into the storm to find her only remaining family, a grandfather who treats her like both a slave and a burden. Instead of finding her grandfather, she finds a gateway to the Abyss, and a chance at a new life.
