Synopsis

The year is 2104 and the space colony of Anastasia Union is at war and under siege. Systems are breaking down and sabotage is suspected. Food is scarce and the city is icing up. Bureaucrats struggle with shortages and the city's Council struggles with its increasingly disaffected citizens. To keep them under control, most of the men have been drafted to barracks outside the city and their leave has been cancelled. So in the workers' dome there are now mainly women and they have developed surprising strategies. A cosy chat is not always what it seems. Gillie chats with Dorothy, Rita, Monica and Phoebe but these are computers and they run the city's supposedly incorruptible security network. What a laugh! Gillie is having such fun but she is no ordinary hacker, she is a time bomb quietly waiting to go off, gleeful in her obscurity. She playfully outwits the authorities while disconcerting her conformist sister and confusing her revolutionary friends. Meanwhile the war goes on and the dangers multiply.
