But with the destruction, a miraculous enigma has also been discovered. From the coasts around the war zone a group of mystically atypical baby girls was born, the Cold Daughters. Healthy in every other way, these infants possess the same strange physical imperfections. Even though fear and superstition threaten their safety, with the help of their champions Nia and her surrogate mothers Claudia and Ahi, all renown in their own branches of social and scientific studies, these beautifully odd girls set out to repair the damaged planet. But will their unique physiology be enough to save humankind?
