A lower-class boy bent upon protecting his girlfriend from a system trying to crush them.
An upper-class girl set upon destroying the system.
With the Sterilization Law threatening the entire lower class, Chase Martinez has a lot to fear. Everyone around him is rising and falling for their rights. Chase’s only goal is to protect his girlfriend, Mariana. But what can a single man do against those seeking to destroy everything he has ever worked for?
As the daughter of state officer Andrew Davis, Tina has known nothing but privilege and luxury. Her experiences change, however, when she meets Chase for the first time. Never before had she realized how cruel and unfair the system could be.
When the Sterilization Law is passed and the riots take a turn for the worse, shattering Chase’s life beyond repair, Tina can no longer remain impassive. Now has come the time to take matters into her own hands: she will infiltrate the system and tear it apart from the inside out.
