In the shadow of a space elevator, young Simon Carter must sacrifice everything to save what remains of his family.
Synopsis: A family of scavengers. A corrupt spaceport. After a brutal attack on his father, Simon Carter must sacrifice everything to save his younger brother from Clarke's Town's callous matriarch. The Carter family live on the fringes and despite their poverty have something approaching a life — but it is fracturing. Dave is on the cusp of puberty and is beginning to understand that he does not belong. Simon is on the cusp of manhood and is steeling himself for the life that is to come. Their father, Adam, is a once-proud man who has been broken by life, and must accept that he can no longer protect his children.
