Wracked by economic and environmental problems, the desperate Earth is rescued, for better or worse, by alien colonizers, who remake the planet as a tourist destination. Ruled over by a brutal interstellar bureaucracy, dispossessed humans seek better lives via the few routes available - working for the colonial police; eking out a living as black marketeers, drug dealers, or artists; prostituting themselves to exploitative extra-terrestrial visitors - or facing the cold void of space in rickety illegal ships.
