A cyclone has exposed what may be fossils of scientific significance on Katajarri, an island in the Indian Ocean off the north coast of Western Australia. A geologist sails with a supply boat to the island to examine the finds, but the company that wants to build a smelter on the island does not want her discovery to interfere with their plans. With everyone after her - a company hit-man, an international crime syndicate and corrupt politicians, she is chased all around the northwest, up against everything from snakes and rifles to stun guns, electrolasers and bad PR. Physically isolated, Adams feels the clash between virtual and material reality when, digitally intervening in every aspect of her life, her pursuers manufacture an entire false identity around her, and seemingly helpless against it, Adams can only watch while through remote interaction, the world interacts with someone completely different from herself. Alone in the desert, she is faced with the question – in a world of calculation by the masses, what is an individual anymore, anyway? But more immediately, surrounded by corruption, faced with the prospect of being the only law that is, now ahead of the people who are chasing her, Adams has to make a decision - what is she going to do with them?
