Pol suffers from a very rare hormonal disorder that ages him erratically; when he was 13, his body aged ten years overnight, and now in his early 30s, he still has the outward appearance of a 23-year-old. But with his condition dormant, Pol manages to maintain his research into the work of Bartholomew Playfere, an obscure 17th-century Puritan prophet, and his premonitions of ecological disaster and the end of the world. But while Pol is failing to complete his research on Playfere, he encounters a radical new movement that argues that all economic and political events are part of an aeon-long struggle between the old and the young.
