In the twenty-second century, the GPC has convinced the government to severely cut budgets and programs, creating an underclass of many of its poor and working-class citizens. It is now the year 2108. The haves and the have-nots live in totally separate communities and with no real contact, aside from the soldiers who guard the perimeter that runs between them. Penitentiaries that used to house criminals, mental institutions, and charities (welfares) are relics of the past. Either you are an asset to Haven's society or you are thrown to the "other side," never to return. David Stuart is determined to make a difference to help the "discards" after he secretly slipped food in through the perimeter and created a bond with one of them. His life will never be the same once he encounters the horrors of Haven'ot.
