South Florida is underwater. The privileged live in elevated cities looming the over mostly-abandoned, inun-dated population centers of Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Palm Beach. The Environmental Policy Surveillance, Implemen-tation and Enforcement Authority (the 'Mentals) wields absolute power, exacting revenge upon earlier generations for standing by as the planet was "polluted, denuded and disputed" nearly to death. Such is the power of the 'Mentals that they have imposed the immediate dissolution of NASA's Moon mining operations, marooning a dozen American astronauts on the lunar surface.
Robert has begun a new job with an energy distributor. Having "gone along to get along" for his entire life, he's now called upon to take a stand and to become a vital part of the ragtag resistance building among the forgotten people living "down below.” The day has finally arrived when he'll prove his worth; he’ll provide the Helium 3 fuel they need so desperately to save the stranded astronauts.
