Nrekeeka 'Keeka' Seldon knows what it feels like to lose loved ones.

First her father, then her mother, and now her sister has contracted the deadly Amaran Virus. The Parset Department of Health and Welfare have been searching for the cure for decades, only to come up empty-handed. Desperate, they hire Robyn Stamos, a teenage prodigy with an agenda of his own. For him, finding what has been so elusive is nothing more than child's play, but he isn't ready to turn it over just yet.

When family is all you have, you do everything in your power to look out for them.

Even if that means stealing from the government.
