A power company teams up with an evil venture capital company to mine what appears to be an unlimited power source from another dimension.
This other dimension was discovered by the cosmophysicists of the mid 21st Century, but was tippy top clearance - level 11, and only a few knew about it. Max was one of them - and he is the one who is about to sell his mining plan to another power company.
Oh, yeah, we have run out of power sources by now after nearly destroying the planet with our carbon induced Global Warming, but at least we have reduced the population a bit. Max is kidnapped by the forces of evil... who want the monopoly on the new power source.
Powers of evil forget that they need Maddy, Max's wife, to force him to do what they want, so they manufacture videos of her and pretend she is being held captive.
Maddy herself goes on the run with the dogbot, K9-5.
The evil ones plan to set up a power station somewhere in New Mexico. No one is to know where the power is coming from. All Hush Hush
Problem – MAX gets the power coming in – All is fantastic for the forces of evil and even life as we know it seems pretty damn good - but something in this dimension has to be traded for that power – substituted – like mass for mass. Turns out this other dimension begins to extract their missing energy from the Sun.
Temperature and weather changes begin to occur.
And meanwhile Max's wife, Maddy, and their dogbot, K9-5 are planning a rescue mission for Max.
