Desire for a mysterious, Nigerian classmate, Zaria, and an allegation of sexual assault threaten to derail his ambitions. His skeptical sister, Sophia, attends the same university and discovers secrets about her brother, mother, and father which shatter her already bleak outlook on life.
After reviewing research done by Jacob and Zaria, Richard Martin deduces that materials such as plastics will become more valuable as oil production wanes and plots with an Englishman, Brian Smith, and a Nigerian, Ajani Oni, to corner the plastics industry.
