A futuristic eco-thriller about Ellie, a kidnapped child warrior determined to free herself--and free the planet. Listen: Can you hear THE ROAR? Answer the call of the wild!Mika and Ellie live in a future behind a wall: Solid concrete topped with high-voltage razor wire and guarded by a battalion of Ghengis Borgs, it was built to keep out the animals, because animals carry the plague.

She's strapping on her headset, jumpstarting her Pod Fighter, and--with her capuchin monkey at her back--she's breaking out!
