The play follows three characters who live in a post-post-post-post apocalyptic world run by a mysterious entity called The Academy, a place we never see.

The Farm Representative oversees all activity on the Farm, where all our action takes place, and reports back to The Academy. Rabia and Chrysanthemum are workers on the Farm, where they help to harvest typewriter parts from the endless orchards which are then shipped off to The Academy on blimps to be used for…something.

One day, two strange documents fall from a passing blimp and Rabia and Chrysanthemum find them. They get unwittingly swept up into the plans of those in charge, and their lives become more and more altered as they each try to take flight and rise above the mayhem of a partially rebuilt world.
