Isabella would do anything for her little girl, Ella. She loves nothing more than having Ella cut her hair, or watching Ella pet the elephants at the zoo. When Ella gets older, however, as all little girls do, she finds new friends and becomes distant and dismissive with Isabella.
Isabella can’t understand why Ella won't talk to her anymore, why Ella ignores her attempts at communicating. She begins to feel as if she doesn't matter, doesn’t exist anymore. Ella is her whole world. She'd be nothing without Ella.
Unfortunately for Isabella, she comes to learn that this may, in fact, be very close to the truth.

The Messenger wanders into town from out of the wastes carrying a message he's suffered at great lengths to deliver. The people of Scanlon, the last surviving town in that part of the world, are very eager to hear what the man has to say about the people back east; they'd given them up for dead a long time ago. But when the Messenger isn't sure if these are the people for whom his message was meant, the good people of Scanlon don't take very kindly to his reluctance.
