In the 21st Century, two uneasy nations are at the brink of war. The Confederacy, having long given up slavery, shows the world how all men and women are brothers and sisters. In the embittered United States, however, men and women are joined only by the forces which dominate their lives - a hellish industrial state, controlling the population with the help of a Christian Fundamentalist television preacher, and the grim agents of the Industrial Protection Agency.
But there is hope in the midst of chaos, an Underground Railroad taking workers from the North to the South. This is the story of one man's emotional and spiritual odyssey as he travels the danger-filled path to the Confederacy.
