Two teenagers, Kansas and James, must rely on each other as they attempt to escape from a not-so-future world that rations everything from water to children to the length of a human life -- a plastic-coated, slogan-filled society where citizens are expected to lose even language itself by a certain age. Alternating between their journey and the memories of a woman who lives outside of society with only scraps of words as her weapons, The Realm is a chilling exploration of the power of language, for better or worse, to make new worlds.
