Three years earlier, the town Grimsdon was hit by a massive wave that flooded the town. Most were saved, some were left to rot and some were left behind choosing their destiny in the unsafe village of Grimsdon. Isabella Charm and her best friend Griffin along with some younger children (Raffy, Bea and Fly)have survived in the ruins of Grimsdon relying on Griffin's magnificent inventions, Isabella's fighting skills and all their eagerness in scavenging for food and necessities. But when a new kid arrives in town, the gang have to make a big decision about whether they should allow him to roam their building or not. And is Sneddon really protecting them from bounty hunters? Or is he only in it for Griffin's inventions?
