'The Wall' follows protagonist John Kavanagh, a young man conscripted into service guarding his island nation's extensive border wall alongside other youth. The Change, a drastic shift in weather patterns and sea levels, has rendered the outside world nearly uninhabitable and driven groups of refugees to seek shelter beyond the wall. Kavanagh and his compatriots are tasked with keeping out the so-called 'Others'; if they fail to defend the border they risk being killed or put out to sea to become Others themselves. Woven between his unit's struggle to survive freezing temperatures, assaults by groups of Others, and the precarious politics of their nation are undercurrents of love, comradery, and ultimately questions of what it means to belong.
