It is the year 2115 AD. While the rest of the world is taking great strides in poverty control, medical research, and peace negotiations, Iampridem , a small island in the Pacific, is going backwards. The island is ruled over by a corrupt business leader, Xian (pronounced Z-eye-an). The island's main source of income and employment is the nuclear weaponry production facility. Tad is a thief, one of the best on the island. She is employed mainly by Xian's chief enemy, Trant, leader of an underground movement to bring Imperialism to the island from Britain in hopes of stabilizing the economy and improving living conditions. Tad tends to play both sides, though, based on who's paying more. Her loyalties lie only to herself, until an elderly Catholic priest and an ex-stripper employ her to find a missing child who is actually the offspring of a powerful alien race.
