The problem that nobody wants to address can no longer be ignored.
The inevitable conflict over natural resources, especially fresh water, is coming to a head with the uncontrolled rise in human global population. Something must be done!
Anno's team is a new concept and the result of many government's cooperation but it quickly exceeds its original brief and instigates global change in thinking and approach to the problem. What is initially interpreted as a nuclear threat turns out to be a way of reducing global numbers but it would be unacceptable if made public. Anno soon discovers that his objective is not shared by everyone and some are prepared to use the ultimate sanction to protect their interests.
