How do we move forward from here? Young people know that time is running out, and will no longer be able to avoid the consequences of climate change.

What kind of future do they stand to inherit?

Soon, very soon, Big Ben will be underwater, surrounded by ice floes.
Enid and Mia wait to be rescued from the rising floodwaters and taken to a Holiday Inn to be reprogrammed. In this world, robots are in charge and Mia and Enid must decide whether they too want to live forever or take their chances in the icy waters.
Will they decide that Earth’s last sunset is worth hanging around for thousands of years to see?
