Julian West had been put into a hypnotic trance and placed in a sealed room. Then the house burned down and he was forgotten...until he awoke forty years later. It was the year 2000, and it seemed like Utopia.

Julian West was a child, lost among the wonders of the Twenty-First Century - but he would have to adapt and learn if he wanted to survive.
