It is 2089 in a new Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a city divided into two levels. The upper crust of society stay on the Firdaus level with the best food, facilities and amenities. The downtrodden reside on the Tanah level, with no access to sunlight, and survive on measly resources. The governing body, the Bersatu Coalition (with headquarters in Firdaus), is under attack by the Tanah resistant group, Kumpulan Rintangan Negara (KRN). Utilizing cyberbionic implant technology, the Coalition inserts Insp. Moktar Ghazali’s stream of consciousness into the body of a captured Tanah dweller and sends him undercover. His mission: to infiltrate the KRN and plant a virus into their computer mainframe.
