United Nations scientists have discovered a strange distortion field approaching Earth, and they suspect time travel itself is to blame. UN Command develops two courses of action: Travel to the past and execute the supposed originator of their time machine, and engineer a shield, deployed directly to the field at the edge of the solar system. When the scientists have trouble constructing the shield, extra pressure is put on the execution plan.

Major Milona Devon, of the UN Reconnaissance Special Force team already trained in temporal missions, is ordered to visit the distant past and investigate Professor Peter Nexin. Because of interim decades of depressions and terrorism which destroyed most public records, Milona must determine that Peter Nexin is indeed the originator of their time machine, and if necessary, execute him. Milona's problem is that she begins to fall in love with Peter, whose simple life seems more authentic to her than her own. She risks failing her mission and the world, wondering where, or when, she belongs, also questioning the ethics involved, which seem at odds with the accomplishments of her time. How can she remove an innocent person, even to spare billions of others?

Once resigned to her duty and the completion of her mission, Milona returns to the present to find the field has been unaffected, but also that she never existed. No one knows about Milona or her operation, and further, the scientists have now perfected their solution, to be deployed right away. In resolving her dilemma, Milona must convince her commanders to trust her and allow her to return to the past to prevent a murder. By correcting the past and leaving the rest to her superiors, Milona begins a whole new future.
