A young man and his two young sisters flee civil unrest and rape in the Congo, hiding in a hi-tech cargo transport system. A crew member going through her own personal crisis is there only hope of achieving refugee status. The high-tech nature of the cargo transport system is the only element of the story which in theory makes it SF, and the story itself is ok as fine as it goes, but it doesn’t go anywhere not gone before.
