In a post-apocalyptic no man's land Luka, a young soldier, crosses desolate mountains to the north in search of the legendary outpost of Fort Kairos. After barely surviving the journey, he wakes up in a dreary clinic. To his surprise he discovers that Fort Kairos is dilapidated and dysfunctional and run by eccentrics. There is commander Gor with wooden fingers, an almost blind general Kane in his chariot-like wheelchair and a bullying Sergeant-Major Raf.
