It's November the second, 2063 - the Day of the Dead. Down in Necroville, the dead are planning to party - and everyone's invited. For in the 21st century, nanotechnology has revolutionized the laws of birth, death and entropy. The resurrected dead account for almost one third of the world population - and the backbone of its workforce. They have their own culture, their own mores - and their own ghettos, the Necrovilles. And tonight is their night. Down into Necroville go five young people in fulfilment of a pact, each one knowing, or unknowing, in search of something. As their paths entwine, and they find themselves drawn ever deeper into the mysteries of the post-lifestyle, each one will find him or herself irrevocably changed.
