It all happened so quickly.


First, animals became infected with the virus and their meat became poisonous.

Then governments initiated the Transition.

Now, 'special meat' - human meat - is legal.


Marcos is in the business of slaughtering humans - only no one calls them that. He works with numbers, consignments, processing. One day, he's given a gift to seal a deal: a specimen of the finest quality. He leaves her in his barn, tied up, a problem to be disposed of later. But she haunts Marcos. Her trembling body, and watchful gaze, seem to understand. And soon, he becomes tortured by what has been lost - and what might still be saved.
