The irresistible force meets the immovable object in this modern tale. Samuel, a small town lawyer, is capable of so much more. He is 'discovered' by some Galactic neighbors, who promptly make him responsible for everyone on Earth. Rock Knighton is Earth's undisputed crime kingpin. He controls the planet like none before him. When Samuel tries to interfere, to put an end to the daily violence we all experience, there is a clash with Rock of epic proportions. In the middle of all this, a crashed spacecraft finally proves we are not alone in the universe, and our planets new guests are not so pleased to be here. Whoever gets to the visitors first may well rule the planet forever.
