Synopsis

Beginning of the 23rd century. Somewhere in the three levels of NYC, there's a woman with blue hair, who cries blue tears. Her name is Jill Bioskop. She doesn't know it yet, but Horus the falcon-headed god has cruised half the universe to meet her.

Horus has been sentenced to death by his peers. He has just seven days to live. Seven days to find Jill in the maze of the city and seduce her. But to do so, he needs to possess a human body. A vehicle of flesh. It will be Alcide Nikopol, a political prisoner who was cryogenised 30 years before because he knew too much about the New York Apartheid.

Horus, Nikopol and Jill... a weird ménage à trois where everything is twisted: voices, bodies, memories... everything but love, which shows up where it wasn't expected. Meanwhile, the pyramid of gods flies above Manhattan, aliens make secret plans at the top of skyscrapers, a non-human serial killer walks the streets of Level 1... This is enough to fascinate Jonathan Froebe, a semi-living cop and to terrify Senator Kyle Allgood Jr., when election time comes around.
