It’s 2052, four years since the pandemic. The lottery winners, those who were lucky enough to win vaccination against the viral cancers are, almost without exception, young and fit and strong.
Jim Jones was a winner. Now though, driven toward a better life, he’s just trying to earn enough to pay for his studies. Taking a job as a minicab driver on the coast seems like a great idea. Work's busy, sometimes fun, and not without its perks. And, while it can occasionally be a little dangerous, the coin’s good and the hours suit.
Like most nineteen-year-olds, Jim’s learning that appearances can be, and often are, quite deceptive. His biggest lesson comes one night when he stops, in the middle of nowhere, for a beautiful girl in trouble. That was his first mistake. His second mistake was pressing a big purple button under his taxi’s dash, something he’d repeatedly been warned not to do.
And now, something evil is homing in on the transporter, and on Jim too.
