For years, they’ve controlled us, used us, murdered us. But now, the war will begin and they will be brought down.
The year is 4012 and the planet Earth which was once divide by continents, is now divided into four cities all run by an organization known as MediaTech; the future of technology. MediaTech's main purpose is to please the people by creating products which will serve for an easier and more efficient lifestyle, something Calissa Heart is not too fond off. For she is a firm believer of a free world where people are allowed to make their own choices. A belief she lives out in her own life as she desperately tries to blend in with society. Something that has always been somewhat of a challenge for her but becomes particularly difficult when is caught in the crossfire of an organization known as IZX. An organization which hunts, profits and kills people who are born gifted; people like her.
As Calissa fights to stay alive and find her missing family, she finds sanctity in the Safehouse, a hidden location which protects the victims of IZX. A place run by Ian, a handsome young man whose stubborn and demanding ways create tension between the two in the beginning. With the help of Ian and the Rebellion, an army set off to protect the people, Calissa sets off on a mission to expose the company that has destroyed so many innocent lives and get her family back, only to learn that there are far greater secrets untold, secrets pertaining to her and the company many worship.
As Calissa battles her inner demons she finds herself having to make the ultimate choice... one that requires the ultimate sacrifice.
