It is the year 2020. Almost twenty years have passed since 9/11 and finally the troops have been brought back home. But the War on Terror continues. It’s the domestic front that has taken the spotlight. Terrorist activity within the U.S. has intensified. Crime in the U.S. has intensified. Violence in the U.S. has intensified. And Big Brother has intensified. Global Warming is still widely ignored. With unemployment and the economy still the major issues in American politics. And then there is Raymond Red. A selfish loner content with life until technology makes his job obsolete. Out of work and running out of money he’d rather call it quits then face his future. His selfish attitude comes up with a selfish plan. Suicide is his solution. Before putting his plan into action he decides to take a final trip to South Florida to sell property he inherited. But the flight he takes ends up crashing, leaving him as the only survivor. From that moment on he has a new sense of perception. Something reconnects in his head and he is exposed to feelings he never had before.
His interview with authorities after the crash has him face to face with flag waving, “post 9/11 world’ witch hunters from the Dept. of Homeland Security who assume it’s an act of terrorism. When Raymond explains what he witnessed from the window on the plane, a bird strike that caused a jet engine to explode, the investigators think he’s crazy and a suspect. He blows them off and tries to follow through with his plans. But his new found feelings get in the way and he rescues a stray kitten. Because of the cat he meets a girl(Becky) and suddenly Raymond feels more alive then ever before. Becky is an active member of the Animal Liberation Front and his first date with her is a night filled with sex and direct actions. Feeling reborn Raymond wants to secure his relationship with Becky, recognizing her as the power source. But her free-spirit blind-sides him. And for the first time in his life he feels what its like to be blown-off. He travels back to N.Y.C. with his tale between his legs. No longer feeling content with his life after being exposed to the highs and lows of love. So his plan changes. Now he seeks a relationship like the short lived one he just experienced. Only not so short lived. He wants to feel alive again and live his life. But strange circumstances continue and before he even makes it home he becomes attracted to a girl in distress(Joanne) and has to chase her down to make her part of his life. Joanne is a mirror of Becky and Ray believes she is the real deal, willing to fight for her. He gets his chance when Federal Agents searching for them individually are outmatched and outsmarted by them collectively. They make their escape and enter into the vanguard of catastrophic revolution.
