In a world where tower blocks are stone mountains and city walls are urban tapestries retelling epic fights, Michael keeps away from the warring tribes until a passerby helps him out of a tight situation.
Instantly, he is pulled into the culture he has tried to escape. The city spirals out of control as battle lines are drawn and redrawn. In the quest for balance, loyalty, faith and friendships are tested, but will Michael succeed in ending the war?
In rich poetry, and with a live soundtrack from drummer Aki Fujimoto and flautist Mikey Kirkpatrick, the poet and performer Inua Ellams (The 14th Tale, Black T-shirt Collection) conjures the violence of a city not unlike London and imagines a more beautiful world beyond it.

'Scorching piece of spoken-word performance... Ellams mixes politics and poetry, gritty realism and new-age dreaming.' (The Guardian)
