Once inside, he opened his safe and proceeded to shred each page of his notes on the mutated form of the AIDS virus, which he had been working on for all those years. Then he destroyed all but a syringe full of the microorganism, which he then proceeded to inject into himself through his thigh. A contented feeling passed through his body, as the beginning of his plan advanced without a hassle.

Imagine a world where the AIDS virus mutates into a more deadly form that becomes communicable by touch and leaves those it doesn't kill sterile. The top scientists in the world are baffled-and they can't stop it.

This nightmarish scenario becomes reality in the year 2241. The remnants of the biological catastrophe caused by FS Syndrome have created a world where any type of intimacy is strictly prohibited. It is here that Susan 170 and Bob 162, two very different people, fall in love with each other. Follow their saga as they attempt the unthinkable possibility of a physical relationship and as they are pursued by two ruthless, unrelenting police officers out to protect society by destroying them.

Can the compass of life determine the future of these individuals and this world?
