Nils: The Tree of Life

Nils: The Tree of Life

The end of one world is the beginning of another.

In a distant future where nature has reclaimed much of the Earth, young Nils and his father set out to discover why the ground has recently grown infertile, only to discover a conspiracy between a high-tech neighboring kingdom and the supernatural beings who can offer them eternal life.

NILS is a dystopic Nordic fantasy, where spirits of light are the key to life, but seemingly have abandoned the world. Young Nils and his father set out to discover why the ground has grown infertile, heading north where the drought seems worse to find the cause. Far along the way, they find signs of fresh and vibrant life, caretaken by these little light spirits. But before they know it, a large metal creature arrives and attacks the creatures, apparently hunting and gathering them for the nearby high-tech Cyan Nation…

From out of the woods, a woman attacks the creature, bringing it to its knees… This huntress, named Alba, takes Nils and his father into their tribe, where the battle between the shamanistic people and the Cyan Nation is paramount, a battle over the protection vs exploitation of the light spirits power…

Meanwhile, three goddesses watch these events, lamenting the fact that man had abandoned all belief in their power long ago. They watch but do not intervene, despite the fact that the spirits are being harvested en masse by the Cyan Nation, wreaking ruin on the world outside their city. Realizing that this conflict will in one way or another change the very fabric of this world, they slowly begin to intervene…

High fantasy adventure combining science-fiction with pseudo-spiritual magic, posing dramatic examinations of man vs nature, life vs death, fact vs faith, and man’s desire to play god.
