A new dawn is on the horizon, where boundaries are broken, diversity is embraced, and an optimistic, creative vision of our future on Earth takes center stage.

Fear takes us down an unexpected road in EOS, a revolutionary Solarpunk story from author Samantha Redstreake Geary, in collaboration with artist Jenny Vyas, featuring music by Really Slow Motion, and groundbreaking graphics via designer Koke Núñez Gómez! EOS tackles real-world issues concerning terrorism, prejudice, and diversity, to near-future technology surrounding sustainable energy that restores the balance between humanity and nature. This isn’t a defeatist tale. It is a look through the lens of positive futurism that showcases the courage, compassion and capabilities of humanity as equal partners in building a bridge to a better tomorrow.


Meet the Characters

Lupita Nyong’o as Zari

Arjun stares with wonder at the sea of suspended crystal panels. His fingers find their rhythm, and within minutes, he’s flying through the complex web of code with unbridled joy. Within an hour, he cracks the key to unlocking the mysterious file.

A holographic scene sparks to life. This was no recording.

This was a memory.

Struggling in the center of a smoke-filled room, fire licking at the walls, was a bruised and bleeding Zari Oadira. An unfamiliar man, untouched by the devastation surrounding him, gripped her head savagely.

Behind them, a beautiful dark-haired woman was slumped at an odd angle over a pile of debris, her glassy eyes unseeing.

Zari stared into the eyes of the memory holder, tears cutting through the dust caking her face. Though the words that spilled from her swollen lips fell on deaf ears, the meaning was clear.

She was saying goodbye to someone she loved.

In one brutally swift motion, Zari’s body crumpled to the floor.

EOS struggles to process what she has seen, to comprehend the gravity of what she now knows.

The answer to the final question.
