Flesh Field is a horror fantasy action story based on T.S. Eliot's poem The Waste Land. Much like the Fisher King in T.S. Eliot's work, the main character, Rex Fisher, is searching for life in a decomposing world.
Rex Fisher, a former U.S. Navy SEAL commander, has successfully established a billion-dollar business empire, Rex Executive Command, as a security contractor. Having lived a life on the edge of death and decadence for many years, Rex wishes nothing more than to father a child and settle down for good with his pampered supermodel girlfriend Oedipa on his private island in the Indian Ocean. However, Oedipa and her best friend, the eccentric fashion billionaire Victor Shakapopulis, are not entirely convinced that Rex is father material because of his profession. Despite Victor's objections, Oedipa agrees to start a family with Rex if he can bring her an occult artifact, the Orexis Oriens, crafted by Semiramis, the Queen of Babylon.
