Thebes lies in ruins. An elected Cabinet of women, led by the President Elect Eurydice, sets about rebuilding Thebes from the ashes of a brutal civil war. They start by gathering testimonies from those who have suffered. Theseus, the First Citizen of Athens, arrives on a diplomatic mission to survey the damage but the rot has penetrated deep into the core of the city, making chaos out of all attempts at control. Unspeakable war crimes have scarred the souls of the citizens, and recovery starts to look impossible...
