The town of Medeira was once a thriving and bountiful place. Over the last six months, what once appeared to be alive, is now slowly withering away into nothing. Crops are failing.

Only she can return the town to its former glory. Or perhaps she’s destined to bring ruin. If only someone could get to her and find out.
