New York, an alternate present: the quantum computing revolution has begun
and investors are lining their pockets in the quantum trading market.
Building the network, though, requires miles of infrastructure to be laid
between huge magnetic cubes by "cablers" - unprotected gig workers who
compete against robots to pull wires over rough terrain. Queens delivery
man Ray Tincelli (Dean Imperial) is skeptical of new technology, and the
buy-in to start cabling is steep, but he struggles to support himself and
his ailing younger brother, who suffers from a mysterious illness. So when
Ray scores a shady permit, he believes their fortunes may have finally
changed. What he doesn't expect is to be pulled into a conspiracy involving
hostile cablers, corporate greed, and the mysterious "Lapsis" who may have
previously owned his medallion.
