Amidst a hurricane of hindrances, and devastating unintentional effects, a defiant, made up our minds invoice Harrison confronts the ultimate questions that grasp like an executioner’s sword over the human species: Who will chart the long run process human evolution? Who will keep watch over our final future? Will it's us? Or an elusive, strong, invisible adversary?
