Featuring the voice of Zawe Ashton. In the far future, mankind has spread throughout the stars. The Galactic Human Empire is ruled by a massive byzantine theocracy, a dense, ancient mess of rituals, dogma and bureaucracy, so old and complex that nobody really understands it all any more.
Fleeing the authorities after selling a batch of dodgy codpieces is Sarah – a small time crook who has got in over her head and is now branded a heretic. Forced along with her are an unlikely crew of reluctant rebels, caught up in the action against their will.
Their friendship is forged in their mutual struggle for survival after it becomes obvious that the Theocracy is interested only in destroying them all.
Backed in to a corner by the vicious regime, they reluctantly begin to build a resistance movement using only their wits and an inexhaustible supply of eagles.
