It's 2096. Scientists work to protect a baking planet. What a drought-stricken Europe needs is rain. What it gets is a messiah.

Eli is born in a suburb of Prague. A rainstorm heralds the birth. Perhaps this messiah is for real. Eli's father abandons the family to become the dictator's right-hand man. Eli's elder brother Marek guides Eli through his short and powerful life.

Can tales of a messiah be enough to heal a ravaged planet in which few babies are born? Marek works with the zeal of a prophet. Aged 72, he's still going strong. A new follower joins Marek's community, Natalia. She invigorates the old man, but what's the worth of human love when the world is ending? Marek sets out to find his answer.

My Brother the Messiah is a story about daring to seed the future of our planet.
