Kira is a medical student who is tired of seeing dead bodies taken by a biological virus. Humans are on the verge of civil war due to the mandatory pregnancy laws starting for 16-year-olds. Determined to stop a civil war and to save the world, she sets out on a journey to defy humanity. To save everyone, she goes looking for Partials, a society of bio-engineered human look-alikes, to help save mankind. When she finds them she discovers that they too are on the verge of extinction. Can Kira save both races? What is causing them all to die? Can she stop a civil war?
