As a child, Max was part of a highly classified genetic enhancement project. She and several other children were trained in a deeply secluded compound to use their superhuman powers. At a young age, Max and several others escaped the compound and made their way in the world. Now a beautiful young bike messenger and thief, Max is trying to find her lost "siblings" from the project, but at the same time, Max is trying to dodge capture from her former handlers led by Lydecker, and is aided in her quest by Logan Cale, an idealistic cyber-journalist.
In the year 2019, the United States has become a third-world country in the wake of the Pulse - an electromagnetic shockwave unleashed by nuclear terrorists in 2009. This is Max's world, an unforgiving place even for a genetically-engineered soldier like her. From her point of view, she's just a revved-up girl trying to make a run-down world a better place.
On the run from her creators and constantly in search of her past, Max joins forces with the idealistic cyberjournalist "Eyes Only", otherwise known as Logan Cale. This show is an entertaining combination of action, drama, humor, romance and suspense, and it is an intriguing "what if" look into the not-too-distant future.
