He is hailed for his fierce loyalty, but it comes at a price. Special Agent John Smith is thrown into a mission that forces him to question his very own existence. The emperor's secretive Lafayette Guard entrusts him with the impossible. When things are not what they seem, John must decide between following orders and doing the unthinkable. The empire that rules Y.E. 419 had managed to unify humanity. Few know the truth of its violent beginnings. It was forged in a different 1945, in an alternate reality where the allies were not the heroes we celebrate today. There is one rule in John's line of work: follow orders or throw your life away.
