Following the Great Water Wars, the Earth is a hostile place and Christianity is outlawed. Two classes of people have emerged - wealthy Technocrats and poverty-stricken Welfaros. The World Government intends to destroy the Welfaros in the slums of Old Newyork with a heat bomb. A secret committee of twelve has a plan to stop the slaughter and bring hope to the world. All they need is a hero. So far, none of their candidates have survived. Mok is their last hope. And time is running out.
