Thor and Rai are twins who live on an advanced space colony called ‘Juno’. Things take a nasty turn one day when they are kidnapped by the Federal Army’s Special Forces and abandoned on the hostile prison planet Chimera. A cycle on Chimera consists of 181 days of scorching heat and 181 nights of below-freezing temperatures – not to mention it is populated almost entirely by carnivorous plants. The convicts on Chimera have found only one means of survival – reverting back to the law of beasts.

Thor must now use all his wits, strength and courage to endure life as a member of Chimeran society, rise above the rest, and take the only ticket off this planet: becoming the Beast King.
