In the not too distant future, The United States has become the Corporate States of America. Half the population is homeless and live in tent cities or camps. In a new city, Tele hopes to put some of a painful past to rest. She's changed her name and her occupation and with some luck she'll disappear from the radar of corporate agents. A type of amnesia has swept the country. Children travel in savage packs preying upon the more vulnerable population. Few will speak against a corrupt ruling body, but then someone dies from scavenged food, an idea is born and Tele ends up on the fringe of a beginning movement and in fear of being discovered again.
