When the government can weaponize human’s DNA is when Curtis realizes, it has become everyone’s worst enemy.
It's the year 2162, and as is the tradition, Curtis gets his Annulus on the day he becomes an adult. Created from each person's DNA in the shape of an octahedron, the Annulus holds everyone’s spiritual and biometrical codes. It's a pivotal moment, but Curtis' joy is short lived, because as soon as he steps out of the Annulus center he witnesses a robbery. The thief steals vital information that exposes everyone’s top secret Annulus location.
This triggers the loyalty and motivation the Foundation has planted in Curtis’s DNA before he was born, now he yearns to help the Foundation bring long lasting peace to the people of the region. He immediately enlists to be an Annulus Protector, an elite task force that’s trying to apprehend the thief.
As he tracks the thief, Curtis befriends Elok, an underground assailant using the Annulus to enhance himself to fight the Foundation. Being a former engineer for the Foundation, Elok reveals to Curtis that he is the first creation of the Foundation, intertwining Curtis’s fate with the Foundation’s secret plan: To use the Annulus to manipulate everyone’s DNA through the Annulus to create a new race. He faces a decision: catch the thief or sacrifice his life to oppose the power he's trained to protect.
