On the cusp of his fifth birthday, Aarav has been having strange, vivid dreams. His night terrors inspire a curiosity in him. He now wants to learn about his existence and the origin of all humanity. He hoped his father might have some answers, but with Aaravs fifth birthday comes an unexpected announcement: he would be forced to leave home.
Apparently, according to the cruel laws of All-doer, highly intelligent children like Aarav can be taken from their parents at the age of five in order to serve the lords of society. Aarav is indeed bright and brave, so eventually, the principal of his school gives him excerpts from old books that will help the young boy find the answers he seeks.
Through his reading, Aarav realizes All-doer plans to soon annihilate humanity, but there is someone living inside Kalemon Mountain who can save the world. With the help of a friend, Aarav begins his journey to find the savior, but easy passage is made difficult by many adversaries as the young seeker discovers mind-bending answers about existence that stretch even beyond his brilliant mental horizon.
