This novel is set in the future where one corporation controls of all of earth’s assets. Employees of the corporation are oppressed and imprisoned in small living spaces where they perform all work and social related functions via a virtual reality social network.

River is a young man belonging to a small percentage of the employee population that does not fare well in the company supplied artificial environment. He suffers from mental disabilities and lives a life of humiliation and heartbreak. His mental condition degrades and he becomes unable to perform his job resulting in him being exiled to an island where all laid off employees are sent.

Once reaching the island he recovers from his disabled mental state and meets a quirky old man whom most believe to be insane. River’s transformation goes well beyond his mental recovery as this man takes him under his wing and helps him to realize that, although he no longer lives in the company supplied virtual world, he is still living in a virtual reality.
