Set in the near future, STRAY tells the story of Lona, a 16 year-old who has spent her entire existence living another child's life - Julian's. She has been raised in virtual reality, like thousand and thousands of other abandoned children, rather than in foster care or orphanages. Suddenly removed from the Path (as it's called) by fellow Pathers, she tries to figure out who she is and how to live without Julian - and why former Pathers have started dying shortly after leaving the Path at age 18. Are they being murdered? And who is Julian, any way?
