The story is about Albert Smith who is looking for the young woman in a torn photo he found. Lark Green is trying to tell the world about how to save the environment. No one listens. She knows she must find the boy in a torn photo she’s found because he will help her save the earth. Will Albert and Lark find each other? In a world as messed as this one…maybe.
