The era of communication in which we currently live, along with the speed of globalization, is quickly transforming our world. While we have no way of knowing where will these trends take us in twenty or thirty years, we can picture a not-too-distant future in which the impact of current decisions and events plays a major role in the lives of ordinary people.

Young Rick McMahon has big dreams and is ready to take advantage of the opportunities of that world and of a global market integration called GeoOne. Unbeknownst to him, his world is about to become more exhilarating than he ever could have imagined.

Lara Brown is a motivated, well-respected reporter, covering the important events happening around the world. She explains the workings of this globalized system, seeking to offer an intelligent and unbiased view. She suddenly finds herself explaining a financial meltdown on a global scale, along with its many implications.

The financial meltdown and surrounding events covered by Lara now threaten Rick's life and dream, and only time will reveal the ultimate result. Can these two views of the world reconcile-and save Rick's dream in the process?
