17-year-old Cody and her boyfriend, who were randomly selected before birth to receive genetic engineering, are part of the population known as the Ones. Ones are healthy, beautiful and talented...and to some that’s not fair.

Cody begins to believe they have no other choice but to protect their own and draws closer to a group of radical ones led by the passionate Kai, and James begins to question just how far she is willing to go for the cause...
