Hundreds of years after nuclear devastation, the world is forever changed. All forms of loud noise are illegal.
Offenders are cast out once a year, into the hopeless, irradiated wastelands.
But it's not the rebels who face the greatest threats.
The dark powers who maintain the status quo set their sights on several innocent, brilliant college students.
They push a young doctor-to-be into a conspiracy, putting his reputation, family, and life under fire.
They raise a girl into becoming a gorgeous, coveted celebrity, a puppet to please the masses.
They force a young man and woman to rendezvous in the secrecy of a singer group, hiding their forbidden relationship.
This is the story of rats in a maze, who get pushed too far.
