In the near future, the teenagers have been decimated by an unknown virus. The survivors, endowed with uncontrollable psychic powers, are classified by color according to the danger they represent for society, and parked in camps. Ruby, one of the most powerful of them, manages to escape from it to join a group of young people on the run in search of refuge. Quickly, this new “family” realizes that fleeing will not be enough in a world where the adults in power have betrayed them. They will lead a rebellion, uniting their powers to regain control of their future.
