Two characters meet at a crossroads in time and space — an intergalactic anthropologist (Janai) on an officially sanctioned research mission to Earth, and the head of an activist-turned-terrorist group (Auden), who has been hiding out on Earth since the collapse of his planet. Unaware of Auden's true identity, Janai makes him the focus of her research — documenting conversations, movements and his thought process. Unbeknownst to her, the surveillance of her mission becomes part of a broader intergalactic intelligence file which begins to take on a life of its own.
