When Mary buys a pregnancy test in a future timeline where unlawful reproduction is a crime, she steps into a world she never dreamt existed, where things happen that make her question the fabric of reality, drawing herself and her family into an interstellar conspiracy involving the very survival of mankind.
In our world, we have yet to realize the dangers of overpopulation. Historically, only one country has ever created laws to limit the number of children families are allowed to have. What would happen if everyone on Earth had to submit to an authority that did? Mary Curtis and her family are caught up in the gears of this machinery after her father, who works for this ‘company’, discovers evidence of shady goings-on within its walls. An attempt is made on his life, which sends him into hiding as he works to discover what lies behind the story given to the public. Things get even stranger when Mary’s mother and brother are kidnapped and taken to an odd building, which seems impossible to escape. As they delve deeper into the mystery of the building, two impossible allies join their quest, with surprising results.
