In the ensuing days of chaos, Norton Quality Control VP Casey Singleton struggles to find the answer before an international conspiracy discredits the N-22 and unscrupulous news anchors air a lie that will bury the company. And she must do so while being set-up on the inside to take a fall by the very corporation she so desperately wants to save...
