Camila, a wannabe actor desperate to pursue a career on the stage, indentures herself to a theatre company which entertains tourists in low earth orbit. She plays a modern version of the famous 18th-century pirate Anne Bonny and what passes for their act is mostly an excuse to squeeze their captive audiences for tips. But during a performance for a wealthy eight-year-old she begins to realize they may not be acting, and as with the pirates of old, behind their backs one of her crewmates is willing to sell them down the river for a larger percentage of the take.

Responding to an online post, Marie, the daughter of a researcher who worked on a top-secret cold war era project called MK Ultra, contacts and arranges to meet with Ivan.

Born in the commons where 95 percent of the world’s population lives, Ezra is a daredevil who has achieved something unusual, fame. He is an anomaly, in an age where ambition was supposed to have been engineered out of his social stratum. His dangerous stunts finally get him invited to an exclusive enclave in a rebuilt Acapulco resort to cliff dive for the entertainment of the world’s elite. But one of the wealthy guests upstages him then threatens to ensure no one else from the commons will ever rise to prominence again.
