Who can you trust when nothing is as real as virtual reality?
In a time when nothing is as real as virtual reality, sixteen-year-old Eila is shortlisted in a competition by a global technology giant. But then law enforcement officers force her to spy for them, underground activists reveal a murderous plot and someone uses virtual reality to fill her head with a stranger's thoughts. Amid secrets, lies and distortions, Eila must decide how far she will go to protect innocent lives.
