Maetel had no choice but to either run away from her home on La Metal or stay and take over her mother's job of ruling over it. After getting asked to take over her mother, Maetel is forced to return to La Metal. On the way there, she meets a young boy named Nasuka who is traveling to La Metal for a different reason; Revenge. On arriving she quickly comes to realize her mother has been forcing all the humans on the planet to gain mechanical bodies as her planet is being over come with another ice age.
