As the people of the planet that have not been granted powers deal with one catastrophe after another, an ancient Atlantean evil that was kept at bay with the combined power is now loose upon the world.

Caught in a web of double-crossed deceit with rogue agents on his shadow, Shoot's last-shot redemption lays with Silk, a sensuous femme fatale who melts his Humphrey Bogart tough-guy shell.
