Four desperate people haunted by chronic, misunderstood medical ailments are accidentally infected with an experimental ‘perfect virus’ called radiant and taken on a kaleidoscopic ride into the heart of the desert and to the outer edges of the human experience. Seeking to quarantine themselves, and hunted by the government like plague-ridden animals, they run into the wastes of the parched Southwest, watching each other with a dreamlike fascination as the virus begins to change them. What are they becoming? Will they live long enough to know? Come with them to a place called the City of Stones, where age-old fears meet the New Flesh–where man becomes radiant.
