Petra and Carmen have been recruited for a special training protocol within ODAR. Their mission: Grow up through history backwards, make no connection with the world around them, in an attempt to Stave Off the deadly effects of Butterfly Syndrome. Helped along by their chaperone Van, their peers, and a mysterious guide who offers lemon drops with a side of dissenting opinions on the way things ought to be, can the girls become proper ODAR agents before their last connection to anything in the world–each other–falls apart?
