An eco-fable. In the near future, world population has doubled and every bit of the planet has been tamed, except the forbidden continent of Australia. Daniel Dyson escapes his cubicle to test himself in Outback Adventure, but he and his friends aren't counting on a test that goes far beyond the outdoors, and forces them to wrestle with the meaning of civilization.
