Adam Bard, a successful finance executive and aspiring author is looking for such a home. Kate 2600 becomes not only his home but his primary emotional companion. Their relationship is soon threatened by the limitations of human mortality and technical fallibility.

On July 20, 1969, from behind the Iron Curtain in communist Romania, ten-year-old Bogdan Marcu watched Neil Armstrong take the first step on the moon. That moment unleashed a space dream and a chain of events that included a gutsy escape plan, a revolution, a USC graduate application funded by selling cotton socks on the streets of Budapest, a miners' revolt and saving the life of a total stranger who would forever seal his fate.
