In a world where emotional scars manifest as physical scars, disfigurement is just a fact of life.
Those without scars are viewed as collectibles, and as a symbol of wealth-possession and rental of such humans is highly sought after on the Black Market. Kept in Zoos within artificial habitats and under heavy sedation, the Unscarreds are completely unaware of any life other than that inside The Exhibit.
No. 004920, an artificially bred 4th generation Unscarred, is just as blind to the truth as the rest of his kind- until he begins to scar.
Ejected from his perfect world and able to experience emotions for the first time, 492 must learn to survive in a world where every hidden grief is carved into your skin.
The truth will set you free, but not until it is finished with you.
