A village on the outskirts of a war-torn territory clings to life. Operating an old mech with the help of a drone companion, a teenage girl spends each day searching for crop seeds in the nearby rotting fields and mangled hillsides. Growing tired of the monotony and pestered by a curiosity as to her purpose in life, the girl starts to question whether it is time for her to leave the village. But a mishap during a recent hunt for seeds might have just forced her hand by stirring up connections to her past and putting the safety of the village at risk.
