Elle, a descendant of the goddess Ceres, stows aboard a space ship colonizing a distant planet because her powers are essential to the success of the mission. Without her, everyone will die. She's caught and thrown in jail by Cullen, head of Security and the very person who has helped her thus far. In jail her powers are useless. Everyone will die unless Elle convinces Cullen that she's not crazy.
