In a gothic retreat a traumatic event changes his life. The self-destructive behaviour which follows seems at first to give an insight into one of the universe’s greatest secrets - a secret that will have an enormous effect on human civilisation.
A strange but powerful artefact is presented to him. In the deserts outside of Las Vegas he is asked to find the city of light. He searches through London, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and finally Sydney for this city that will become the venue for his apotheosis. Dark forces are at his heels as he races around the world protecting his secret. Finally the Sydney Olympics beckons him to the city of light.
