A murder case, but the murderer is already behind bars. A new technology, which is ripping society apart. One man, on whom the fate of a continent will rest. In a European courtroom a unique litigation case begins. The murderer has already been found guilty and sentenced, but the victim's father believes he lost his daughter because the killer saw a violent film. The proof is in a new, powerful brain scan that in moments can extract all of a person's memories and thoughts. Alek Moreyl is the young litigator who must convince the judges that the film told the murderer to kill the girl. To help him he has an expert in this new technology, but the defendants also have their own expert intent on disproving the claim. After tense courtroom hearings and just as the case is about to be resolved, disaster strikes the city. Thousands are killed, Alek barely escapes with his life, and he finds himself sucked into a frightening world of political intrigue, danger and terrorism.
