Orphaned by a family tragedy at a young age, the half-blood Utah has chosen the FBI as a surrogate family. Devoted to extreme sports and rough-legged experiences, he is more a man of action than the classic office stallion, which is why he struggels with the theoretical entrance exams.
But when a gang of felons driving their big corporations around the world seems to be heading for the camp of poly athletes in search for the ultimate kick, Utah is the best man to follow this trail undercover.
In the subculture of athletes, he quickly encounters the charismatic leader Bohdi and his gang that has what it would take to be the wanted criminals.
Also the adorable Samsara, with whom Utah falls in love with, belongs to the circle around Bohdi.
In addition, the fascination of seemingly free life at limit amidst a substitute family of a different kind leads to an existential conflict of conscience for Utah.
