In a dystopian future where humanity is locked in a virtual world, one man must sacrifice everything to save his family.
Jacob Alvaro is a true family man. A father and grandfather, the only thing he wants in this life is to see his family happy. He wouldn’t be able to tell you if they are, though. He’s the only one left. Jacob’s family and the rest of his shelter have been lost to dreaming away their lives in the virtual world. His only companion now is Gabriel, the shelter’s AI.
When Gabriel starts acting strangely, Jacob shrugs it off as another one of his temper tantrums. But when the AI’s anger turns deadly, Jacob is faced with a horrible choice-can he face his greatest fears to save his family, and the rest of the shelter? Or will he fail and lose his dreams of living on the surface forever?
