In an England isolated from Scotland and the rest of Europe and everyone is micro-chipped with a tag, a group of teenagers try to avoid the authorities to escape to Scotland with information that will save the population from total governmental control.
No one can get into Scotland, just like no one can cross the channel...England is under the control of an authoritarian regime. They can track anyone, anywhere from a chip implanted in their skin.
But Jake, who breaks out of the Academy dorm he's housed in, has decided to escape. To go off-grid. To join a small group of independent spirits determined to keep out of the government's prying eyes.
The Outwalkers. It's only together he'll be able to reach Scotland and safety.
