Esther is one of the Special Ones – four people who live under his protection in a remote farmhouse.

The Special Ones are not allowed to leave, but why would they want to? Here, they are safe from toxic modern life, safe from a meaningless existence, safe in their endless work. He watches them every moment of every day, ready to punish them if they forget who they are – all while broadcasting their lives to eager followers on the outside.

Esther knows he will renew her if she stops being Special, and that renewal almost certainly means death. Yet she also knows she’s a fake. She has no ancient wisdom, no genuine advice to offer her followers.

But like an actor caught up in an endless play, she must keep up the performance – if she wants to survive long enough to escape.
