To Be Heard
Death lurks beyond every corner. A bullet fired makes no sound, only its impact is heard.
After years in captivity, Oriya is set free. She escapes the cell that has been her world for far too long, as she joins Ori and Bar, who have rescued her from the nightmare she was trapped in for an eternity. In the cruel world that awaits her outside, her past is covered and unknown. She doesn’t even remember who she is, or what she was before she was imprisoned.
Ori leads her along this path, this is his role. He knows that he must bring her to her destination, to the end of her path, to restore her voice and allow her to be heard.
Oriya seeks to avoid violence, while he embraces it – as violence is the only way to survive in this cruel world.
Few know what really happened to the world. It is violent and cruel, but also full of beauty, resources, and food. The world is filled with strangers; groups of people who rule the land, fighting each other because of their minor differences, torturing and killing anyone who gets in their way, as their goal is to force their ideology upon others, and rid the world of anyone who is not a stranger like them.
The more progress Oriya makes on her journey, the harsher the encounters with the strangers become. Every confrontation helps her take one more crucial step towards the end, the truth, who she really is, but will her truth be heard?
