Norman, Emma, and Ray are the brightest kids at the Grace Field House orphanage. And under the care of the woman they refer to as "Mama," all the kids have enjoyed a comfortable life. Good food, clean clothes and the perfect environment to learn- what more could an orphan ask for? One day, though, Emma and Norman uncover the dark and twisted truth of the outside world they are forbidden from seeing. Soon, they must make haste to plan their escape!
Transmitters are microscopic crawlers that are applied in the ears of all the orphans in the Grace Field House. Their function is to help caretakers to locate the current whereabouts of certain orphans via the caretaker's radar. The weaknesses of the transmitters are currently limited to how an orphan should cut off his/her eat to detach the transmitter from his/her body, or using Ray's device which could render the transmitter useless.
