Charity Meyers knows what she should do if she's taken.It's 2035, and kidnapping is a career choice for many money minded individuals in the United States. Charity has gone through trainings on kidnapping procedure and lives in a gated and secured neighborhood, escorted to school every day by armed guards. So when Charity wakes up one morning strapped to a stretcher, she knows what to do. Wait. Cooperate. Don't try anything that would compromise the smoothness of the operation. That's how it would work if this was a normal kidnapping, but Charity soon realizes that this isn't normal at all. Will the kidnappers actually give Charity a choice about how to live her life?
