In the mid-2060s in Winnipeg, Manitoba, World War Three is winding down after thirty years of fighting, and Canada has finally pulled out of the war. Gary Foltz, a former math teacher, is one of the few surviving Canadian veterans, and he is seeing a psychiatrist, Dr. Brooks, to help him overcome the trauma.
As he learns to trust his therapist, he shares harrowing stories, painting a picture of the battles he fought during the war, both mentally and physically. His twelve-year journey took him from a battlefield in Princeton, B.C., to the dark prisons of Mongolia, to the dense city of Mumbai and all the way to the warzone in Norway. Dr. Brooks is determined to help his troubled patient untangle the past and make sense of what has happened so he can move forward with his new life in a world that is coming back to peaceful times.
