The future is dead. During an ecological collapse the world has evolved into nothing but a decaying mass of pollution. The Earth's inhabitants circle orbit within crowded space stations and desperate living conditions. Their only hope of paradise is the distant planet Rhea. But that takes money, lots of money. With the hope of funding a trip to Rhea young medic Laura has taken up employment upon the cargo space freighter Kassandra. But it's a ship with a dark and deadly secret and Laura's about to make a gruesome discovery. There's something strange hiding in the cargo bay, something watching her, something that's waiting to kill.
