Policewoman Julia Forward is kidnapped by the Alekto Corporation and is being transported in a Body Transport Unit from Earth. Distraught and unaware of where she is, she awakens in a clearing surrounded by dense forest. Primitive armed warriors surround her and begin to close in. A chase proceeds but she is unable to flee and is captured.
She is taken to a Stoneage community, caged like an animal - their prisoner. Here she meets their depraved leader and space traveller, Olsndot. He is the only human that she can communicate with, here where ever she is. Tentatively he begins to trust her and finally reveals important information about the Corporation. Julia's world, as she knows it, is destroyed.
