Authored by Katarzyna Lezenska, Darek Milewski

Ona: Beata, psycholog z Chicago, uciekinierka sprzed oltarza. Wyjezdza, by rozstac sie nie tylko z niedoszlym mezem, ale i z chora psychicznie matka, ktora wlasnie trafila do zamknietego osrodka. On: Robert, polski matematyk i haker. Rozwodzi sie z transseksualna zona, porzuca stare przyjaznie i naciska przycisk "reset" w swoim zyciu. Kolejny raz. Spotykaja sie w Seattle, w pelnej oryginalow firmie CounterVision, zajmujacej sie zabezpieczaniem innych firm i instytucji przed atakami hakerow. Szybko nastepujace po sobie zdarzenia, podroze, relacje i wybory wystawiaja na probe nie tylko uczucia bohaterow, ale i bezpieczenstwo w internecie. Przypadkowe odkrycie dokonane przez Roberta oraz sledztwo przeprowadzone przez wscibskiego dziennikarza stawiaja pod znakiem zapytania uczciwosc metod, jakimi posluguje sie CounterVision, by zdobyc klientow. Ale to nic w porownaniu z tym, czego doswiadczaja bohaterowie podczas spotkania z matka Beaty i podrozy do Waszyngtonu... Czy nowa milosc wystarczy, by znikly stare koszmary? Czy uda sie im wspolnie pokonac demony przeszlosci?

Beata, a psychologist from Chicago and a run-away bride, leaves town to escape not only her relationship going stale, but also her mother who was just committed to a psychiatric ward. Robert, Polish non-practicing mathematician and accidental hacker, divorces his transsexual wife, leaves his old friends and presses the "reset" button on his life. Again. They meet in Seattle at CounterVision Corporation, an information security company that employs the best hackers money can buy. Fast paced action, many adventures, complications and choices test not only our characters' feelings, but also security of the Internet. Robert's accidental discovery and an independent journalistic investigation question intentions and integrity of CounterVision's marketing methods. But that's nothing, compared to what Beata and Robert experience during a trip to visit Beata's mother and on subsequent visit to Washington, DC. Will the new love be the wonder cure for old nightmares?
