The Fig and The Wasp
How do you fight hopelessness? A senator from a well-known political family, Rosaura Flagg promotes stability to her fellow citizens, even as the country is crumbling. As a mysterious disease starts to spread, her daughter lies in a hospital room in a coma-like sleep. The Fig and The Wasp explores the destruction caused by isolation and the power of care and connection, against the backdrop of a world on fire.
