Set in 2510, ‘The Fields’ depicts the aftermath of a war between rich and poor. With the losing faction forced to live underground, the war has since been long forgotten. The subterranean population believe in a divinely ordained balancing act, in which God infects the most intelligent people with a fungal disease. The underground community then outcasts these individuals to ‘The Fields’, where their disease takes effect and they seemingly become part of the forest. Our protagonist, James, recently lost his friend Ben to the disease. With his partner Grace also infected, James secretly accompanies her to ‘The Fields.’ Having gained entry, James somehow ascends to the ‘Real World.’ Once there, he soon learns the dark truth and his true purpose above ground is revealed.
