Nathan and his wife were separated upon arriving at District #23, a bunker of the Survivalist territories where belief in God is considered a mental disorder. The couple fled a war-struck Europe seeking refuge. To become a citizen, immigrants go through a strenuous examination process spending days locked in a room without knowing the status of their loved ones. This tests Nathan’s patience as he is unable to see his wife, much less know if his citizenship will be put on hold until he is given treatment for believing in a supreme being.
