It's been three years since Storm Freeman released the Gatherer, a device that brought free, infinite energy to the world. The initial reverence has receded from the world changing invention as people are afflicted with a strange, inexplicable disease. Afflicted herself, Freeman has retreated to the Yukon, to hide out from the world. When Maria Kowalski arrives — the special forces agent who first tried to stop her from releasing the Gatherer — Storm has to make a choice: stay hidden or return to the world and destroy what she created.
