Against all odds, 17-year-old Gene has survived in a world where humans have been eaten to near extinction by the general population.
The only remaining humans, or hepers as they are known, are housed in domes on the savannah and studied at the nearby Heper Institute.
Every decade there is a government sponsored hunt.
When Gene is selected to be one of the combatants he must learn the art of the hunt but also elude his fellow competitors whose suspicions about his true nature are growing.
