The story shows Augustine, who is a lonely scientist in the Arctic, channels to stop Sully and her other fellow astronauts from returning home to a mysterious global disaster. After a recent disaster, he is the only survivor, which has left the planet largely uninhabitable and unlivable. He is severely ill, but he refuses to be taken to any sanctuary site which is remaining after the disaster in order to meet his destiny.

The information breaks the scientist’s solitude of the scheduled return of a deep-space exploration crew, who are unaware of the disaster anticipating them. As he thinks about whether to notify them of what comes up for them, a six-year-old girl suddenly turns up in the Arctic solitude. Her situation is not known and unexplainable as she cannot speak.
