Everypony is the hero of their own story. That's how the old saying goes. But Deft Embrace is no hero. Terrified of stepping outside the walls of Neighgaton, and with telekinesis so weak she can barely fire a small pistol, she doesn't have the makings of a hero.
But Deft is a mother, and when danger threatens her two young fillies she will find that the line between mother and hero is sometimes blurred. And that even a weak, frightened mare can be a fierce fighter when defending her children.
But will it be enough? What can one mare do against the whole wasteland?
