Logline: 
Below the glass and steel of the New Orleans Metroplex of 2052, low-tech P.I. Ian Kane searches for a missing AI scientist whose secrets could bring the entire city to a halt.
Synopsis/Details: 

Ian Kane, an ex-reporter and ex-soldier and private investigator hires himself out of a Bourbon District bar in the New Orleans Metroplex of 2052. Unlike most of the world around him, Kane manages to hold on to his ethics.

A young AI specialist has gone missing. Hired by her co-worker, Kane sets out to find the programmer who seemed to have everything going for her. But, there's a lot more to her life then even her best friend knew. She may have uncovered a major corporate espionage plot, or something worse.

Soon, various criminals and guns for hire like his old partner Jackson Wills and alluring bodyguard Shade, along with Hocker, a synth-drug dealer and high-end hitman McMartin, all have an interest in what Kane is trying to find out; either to warn him off or make unveiled threats for him to stop.

From low-level street hustlers, government officials up to the head of the Okada Combine, everyone seems to want what this missing girl had. Kane is literally under the gun to find her and what's got nearly the entire city on edge.
