There's a whole world of tunnels and chambers …
We try to live as well as we can. We try to take care of each other.
It's a refuge, where the disillusioned regain their vision,
where the lost become found.
Where each of us can explore the best of our being.
It's our city … down here.
But we know so little about the community, about the lives lived Above before. Why did these people come below? When?
We know Mouse was found – saved – but little else. Kanin fled his crime. We know Eric's story and Ellie's … Lena's. But we never heard Rebecca's story or Sarah's, or Kipper's or Samantha's and even parts of Michael's and Lisa's are muddled.
We couldn't leave it at that!
