When you come to Penúmbria, stranger, take care! Because there’s nowhere else to go from here. Penúmbria is a fictitious place by the sea. The coast is rough, the clouds hang low over the horizon. Deep sadness drips from every crevice and the infrastructure collapsed a long time ago. The locals decided one day to just leave their community to the course of time. And one day we might say: earth is as uninhabitable as Penúmbria. A dystopia.
