What happened one night in 2739 when seven million LaPortans met a fiery death? Lena Sage is tasked with restoring the illustrious name of LaPorte Industries after this global calamity called the Winter Purge. She must lead while ignoring her nagging suspicions that she is being punished by the same company she has served loyally for over 700 years. Lena is a tangler of the twisted tongue, an enhanced immortal human designed to be formidable in the art of sales and persuasions. The company is floundering with their primary product for sustaining immortality, the SDS System, continually offline for safety testing since the Winter Purge. The SDS system cures many ailments of immortality, most notably the symptoms of Expiration Fever. Customers are demanding Lena switch the cure for mortality back online; however, only its enigmatic founder, LaPorte, can make that happen. Unfortunately, LaPorte has been unsubscribed for decades and is currently unreachable for comment. Undeterred, the loyal Lena Sage continues to sing out her company’s cheery propaganda of false immortality promises to the masses. At the same time, she stews in private about how long she must serve in this impossible task. When a precocious reporter comes sniffing for Lena’s answers on the company’s current demise, a journey is sparked through time and space. Lena will be forced to face the truth about her storied past while bringing prosperity to the faltering society that depends on LaPorte Industries to remain immortal.
