A shining metal wall separates the wealthy, but highly controlled Citizens of LeaderCorp’s City 1 from the slum dwellers struggling for survival in its shadow. Gutsy slum-dweller, Alida, is forced into dangerous and illegal activities by her mother’s death and her sister’s illness. She befriends cloned Neandertal Security Force Officer, Shuqba, who tries to help Alida escape her dire circumstances. When their society, built on exploitation and inequality, tilts dangerously toward collapse Shuqba and Alida question their beliefs about justice and humanity and find reason for hope in each other.
