In Jason Limon's post-apocalyptic Earth, humans have ravaged the planet, and plant life has found a way to make a drastic shift to survive.
Atropa comes to fruition, and in abundance, consumes the planet. They commandeer the bodies of remaining people and animals, blending mammal and plant to create a new life form. Body becomes seed, leaves become wings, and memories live on flowering vines. Atropa is the new life form, and the only one that can survive.
