It's the late 21st century, and things are different. Bo's father and brother are in prison, like 1/3 of the men in the new USSA. Offenses like road rage and verbal assault carry heavy sentences, and the prisoners do most of the work of running the country. Bo realizes that the old saying "like father, like son" is true when he finds himself in a prison camp/pizza factory on the Canadian tundra for not controlling his temper. Prison life is dangerous, but not as dangerous as the illegal football team he's recruited to play on. Should he face the violence of the team, or trust his school AI project, Bork, to get him out? Will he be able to control the violence within him in the real world?
