In the planet Dolvia, Dr. Greensboro runs a clinic in the
remote parts of the savannah, catering to local tribes and refugees. But when
forced by Lt. Mike Shaw to help at the hospital, she must abandon her clinic.
She has witnessed a lot of harsh and inhuman treatment meted out, especially to
women — forced labor, forced migration, and more. With an epidemic threatening
the lives of the locals, she must find ways to protect the most vulnerable from
the impunity of the authorities and teach them to make their own choices,
especially the kinds of dangers they must face. From being forced to appear
before the magistrate for standing up to a ruthless local authority to helping
girls like Brianna — a mixed-race girl susceptible to being the target of
sexual abuse — find their voices, Dr. Greensboro is determined to make a
difference in a world that is fast falling into chaos.
