The future: clean-energy producing chromagems have replaced all other sources of power, allowing the mine-owning cabals to rule CityPlanet as an absolute oligarchy. Serving the Oligarch class are mute androids, "Friends," and a criminal class neural-implanted with NulCircuits that curb free will.

Petty criminal Ron Waffle overrides his NulCircuit with an aerosolized drug called Huff but discovers too late his addiction is killing him - he has months to live. Still feeling guilt over the death of his best friend Box on a heist, he plays uncle for Box's juvenile delinquent kid sister Oofy.

Ron gets a coded message suggesting Boxy may not actually be dead and wants Ron Waffle to recreate the heist that "killed" him. Ron Waffle buys "Pickle," a Friend-class android scrapped after murdering her Oligarch owner and enlists Oofy in the heist.
