Corim Colleran is born into a cold and sterile world. In tiny apartments, meager meals are delivered through chutes in the cupboards. In robot-run schools, sexual development is cultivated with clinical precision. No one can leave their corner of the city. No one can change the course of their predetermined days, or the length of their preset lifespans. The only real thing Corim can choose is the woman he loves, but the life he builds with her is torn apart by a violent encounter with one of society's elites.
