A quest for endless power by some becomes a race by nations to learn the secrets long since buried by the few who rule the surface of the world. They were warned not to meddle in the affairs of below, but in the face of planetary disaster choices are made.

The alternatives, however, don’t allow for choice in the matter as she has no wish to deny her Heavenly Father’s will.
