As we move through the city we meet others in our world, the woman, stricken by fear and poverty, holding on to the last of themselves. Many of them alone, but some band together to hide away from violence and weather.
This is one of the streets our main character Evy uses to travel, off the main roads, and mostly hidden from prying eyes.
One of the places our main character hides out are the abandoned schools of the suburbs, quieter and safer than the streets of the inner city.
poor and often without means, many people in the city use newspaper to cover windows and keep out prying eyes. The haunting headlines of society crumbling often displayed like a giant picture frame.
Many people in the city flee their homes when the landlords become violent and demand to much of them. People band together and hide away under bridges to escape the weather.
