‘What do you see when you look up at the stars?’ TO BE HUMAN is the doorway in to the life of a young boy, Maxwell Alfonso, and his three friends. At seventeen years old one stands on the brink of adulthood and the many wonders and horrors that lie beyond. It is the first step on a journey in to understanding the point of life and, with it, the understanding of just what it means to be human. Living in the quiet seaside town of Whitby, their lives are thrown in to peril when a horrible disaster strikes. What follows is a harrowing, emotional and surreal journey across a country where fear and death literally stalk the land. From Whitby, to Middlesbrough, to Newcastle and beyond the four teenagers will encounter a city torn to pieces by the residents own nightmares, a little girl braver than any adult, people who will die for freedom, and a lonely old man who may just turn the world upside down... Max and his three friends will learn the importance of life, the haunting presence of death, and that in the fight for survival there is no good or evil - only people. They will experience the bonds that form between friends and the joys and happiness it can bring, the sadness of loss, the battle against one’s deepest, darkest fears, and the love that comes along once in a lifetime. They will see what happens when mankind’s greatest tool is turned against it.
