Worried about his health, Richter’s business firm sends a companion Android to help him transition and get well. The Android starts to realize something is not right, and that something or someone is in the woods. Richter’s deterioration has left him quiet and un-trust worthy.

Billy is a broke young man covered with debts and living in a shabby apartment. One day he discovers a magical washing machine in an old laundry room that is capable of generating money. This allows Billy to become rich and he buys all the things that he had always desired. This dream does not last for long though, and the machine stops making money pretty soon. He looses control and kicks the machine several times. At this point the Representative appears, a mysterious character that punishes Billy for his misbehavior: he is first frozen, and then he is sucked into the machine, where he is digested and turned into a cloud of smoke. As the Representative is leaving the room, he encounters a young woman similar to Billy, to whom he suggests to use the magical washing machine.

Policewoman Julia Forward is kidnapped by the Alektro Corporation and is being transported in a Body Transport Unit from Earth. Distraught and unaware of where she is, she awakens in a clearing surrounded by dense forest. Primitive armed warriors surround her and begin to close in. A chase proceeds but she is unable to flee and is captured.

She is taken to a Stoneage community, caged like an animal – their prisoner. Here she meets their depraved leader and space traveller, Olsndot. He is the only human that she can communicate with, here where ever she is. Tentatively he begins to trust her and finally reveals important information about the Corporation. Julia’s world, as she knows it, is destroyed.
