Axel Jack and Daisha Tandala are two 13-year-old friends running from a billionaire madman who killed their scientist parents and now wants what the kids have --- a GeoPort (Geographical Transportation System). The GeoPort, invented by their parents, has the ability to transport a person to any place on Earth within seconds. But when the teens are separated by their pursuers, they must make a life or death attempt to find each other and get the GeoPort to a mysterious Indian Temple where the chase becomes more than just a high-tech game of hide-and-seek, but a war for control of everything --- money, culture, politics and power.
