Every day we choose the kind of person we will be. We make a conscious decision to be honorable, or to lie and cheat. We make choices. Everyone experiences love and loss, fear and desire. Everyone has freewill. What would be the value of a benevolent nature if being good is all that we can be? What would be the blame on those who are wicked, if wickedness is their only nature? For thousands of years, the inhabitants of heaven and hell watched the colorful dramas of human beings play out on Earth... and they were envious. If they could choose, would they walk the path of moral decay, or would they follow a road leading the spiritual reawakening of their immortal soul? These inhuman creatures sought to walk the Earth on a journey of self-awareness. They needed freewill. A bargain is struck. A test begins. Now that they've tasted it, they could never go back.

It's the twenty-third century and humans have evolved. Some now have extraordinary powers; they can read minds, bend time, heal and much more. Although these ‘gifted' people are a tiny proportion of the population, the potential threat they pose scares the so-called ‘normals' who are in power. The gifted have shown no sign of using their gifts for evil, and live peacefully alongside the normal, but despite this they are rounded up, imprisoned and drugged, so that they can't use their powers. Darc, a powerful gifted, sacrifices himself so that his mate, Kali, can escape and, hopefully, save the rest of their people. Escaping is the easy part, but now Kali needs to find her children, free her people and stop the despicable plans of the normal. Only then will she be able to avenge the death of Darc and others and look to the future.
