After the third world war, the organization known as the General Management Control Office constructed the city of Olympus – the only place where chaos and anarchy doesn’t hold sway. It seems unthinkable that terrorists are out to disrupt this pristine society, but the threat becomes very real to SWAT officers Deunan and Briareos when their squad mates are killed during a hostage situation. Bent on catching the lone escaped terrorist, they soon find themselves involved in a plot to undermine the whole existence of their Olympus.
