January 2028, the third stage of the Collapse of the Earth has begun. Famine is spreading across the planet. Animal and plant species are now only found in rare territories. A safe zone has been created for the elites of each country to live in. Leo and his parents, however, are excluded from it because he has Asperger's syndrome. But with his father he is doing promising research on plants and his parents, therefore, hope that their discovery will be a gateway to "The New Globe".


২০২৮ সালের জানুয়ারি মাস। পৃথিবীতে তৃতীয় পর্যায়ের ধ্বংসযজ্ঞের কারনে দুর্ভিক্ষ ছড়িয়ে পড়েছে। প্রাণী ও গাছপালা হয়ে গেছে বিরল প্রজাতি যা শুধু কিছু নির্দিষ্ট অঞ্চলে পাওয়া যায়। প্রত্যেক দেশের অভিজাত শ্রেণির জন্য নিরাপদ অঞ্চলের ব্যবস্থা করা হয়েছে৷ লিও তার 'অ্যাসপারগাস সিনড্রোমের' কারণে তার পরিবারসহ সেই নিরাপদ অঞ্চলের বহির্ভূত৷ কিন্তু, সে তার বাবার সাথে উদ্ভিদের উপর এক বিশেষ রিসার্চ করছে যার উদ্ভাবন হতে পারে তাদের জন্য 'দ্য নিউ গ্লোব' এ যাওয়ার টিকেট।
