The problem with this one is I'm coming at it bigendian, as it were. I know the theme; I have an idea of the characters; I even sort of know the plot. But I'm going to have to throw out all of my worldbuilding and try something different. And the current opening I have is static. I need to blow something up, introduce some conflict.
At least I might have a title. Or maybe not.
