The America of the future is a wasteland of anarchy and incurable disease. When a cyborg whose brain contains the formula for a plague cure is captured by cannibalistic pirates, a good-hearted mercenary springs into action to deliver her safely to the Centers for Disease Control.
A deadly plague is taking hold on a grimy, post-apocalyptic planet Earth. But a cure for the disease could lie in the computer brain of a cyborg named Pearl Prophet -- who's in the possession of a lowlife gang of mutants, led by the evil, imposing Fender. Attempting to save the world is heroic Gibson Rickenbacker, who pursues and battles the thugs for ownership of Pearl. But Gibson also has revenge on his mind, for Fender murdered Gibson's family many years ago.
