300 years from now, the EC minority group is viewed as fragile, a literate remnant in the midst of a hostile world of tough crime lords. The EC of Wyncon are not like the EC of the other great city-states that form the government of this era. They are more adventurous and more secretive. But they’re still not supposed to befriend outsiders, and when elderly Miss Plummer decides to do so, things start to get a little bit complicated. And when her new friend, a cynical street girl named Consuela, turns out to be the truest ally she might have on a visit to Talvira, where her own party of friends is inadequate and her host is trying to betray her, looking outside the borders of the EC wasn’t just an act of kindness for Miss Plummer. It was the best idea she ever had.
