The starry-eyed masses believe the world will soon come to an end, as they have always believed, and the grand apocalypse will usher in a divine savior with comforting ease: problems solved, a new utopia born. The fabulous belief systems and sensational stories foisted on the oblivious multitude are nothing more than a dubious smoke screen that conceals a reality far more precarious and far less promising than anyone knows; except for a rare few who know the truth, they are the Monitors.

Salvatore Retter (trans. Savior Savior), a languishing social worker disenchanted with his profession discovers an indigent man suffering from amnesia on a public beach, just another homeless client on another routine day for the weary social worker, or so he thinks. Within 24 hours the law abiding, socially conforming, Salvatore is dragged into a major U.S. government investigation and is exposed to a dangerous, highly secretive world that will test every ounce of his mettle. After the indigent man whose name is Solomon, is added to Salvatore's case load, one thing becomes alarmingly clear: Solomon is no ordinary homeless person. Torn between his civic responsibility and the intrigue of the amnesiac, homeless man's quasi-verifiable plight, Salvatore makes a dangerous choice. Convinced Solomon's story has merit, Salvatore embarks on a risky journey to help the homeless man deliver a message to the Vice President of the United States, and recover an exotic, exponentially advanced conveyance vehicle all the while pursued by furious government agents. During the journey Salvatore undergoes frightening, synchronistic experiences that gradually reveal and simultaneously deepen the mystery of his life's purpose and alter the direction of the intended journey. Later separated from Solomon by force, and forced to continue alone and sometimes with the aid of allies, Salvatore realizes his true calling during a necessary sojourn to a remote Indian reservation in the Southwest, a place he was compelled to visit by intensely vivid, prophetic dreams. Thereafter, powered by keen self realizations and profound existential insights, Salvatore sets out to rescue Solomon and complete the mission they first began back in California. When the two are reunited in the Nevada high desert near Area 51, Solomon discloses dreaded news that changes Salvatore's life forever. Absolute, unmitigated evil has taken root in the cornerstone foundations of the world, and Salvatore is the one and only purveyor of salvation.
