The year is 2037, and on the tiny island of Isola, seven people have been selected to compete in a forty-eight-hour test for a top-secret intelligence position with the totalitarian Union of Friendship. One of them, Anna Francis, a workaholic bureaucrat with a nine-year-old daughter she rarely sees, has a secret that haunts her. Her assignment: stage her own death and then observe, from her hiding place inside the walls of the house, how the six other candidates react. Who will take control?
