“A broad-shouldered stand on the side of sanctuary, family and love. It's a joyful shout, a reclamation, and a call to arms.” (The New York Times)
 
In a world where every large metropolis has a soul and human avatar, New York City is attacked by an ancient evil, and awakens in the body of a young queer and houseless Black man. After being put into a magical coma, five others awake to protect him, each embodying one of the five boroughs. Together, they endeavor to defeat The Enemy, an embodiment of white supremacy, gentrification, and police brutality.
