Penúmbria (Penumbria)

Synopsis

The distopian city of Penumbria was founded two hundred years ago, in a distant istmus - a place of arid soils, angry seas and violent weather. Penumbria was due its name to the almost permanent shadow, caused be a southern mountain. One day, its inhabitants decided to leave, offering the city to time. This is the story of an uninhabitable place.
