In a post-apocalyptic world of scorching days and freezing nights, the feisty Nour and her younger brother, Malik, navigate a treacherous desert. They face threats from two opposing forces: the Day Blazers, relentless beings evolved for sunlight, and the Night Dwellers, creatures adapted to darkness.

Nour and Malik are unique Duets, capable of surviving both day and night, a rarity in this unforgiving landscape. Scarred by the loss of their family, they've learned to trust no one.

But when the death of Synthese, the only person they have a connection to, sets off a chain of events, Nour faces moral dilemmas and choices that challenge her resolve.
