Andrea Bourne is the world's leading anthropologist, the only Australian member and the leading female member of the International Committee. She is also the true power behind the True Believers' Party. She uses her power and wealth to ensure that the world is a much better place and that all her goals and ambitions are achieved for the good of the whole world and the furtherance of her superior understanding of the true meaning of life. Andrea has a deep dark secret; she is deeply ashamed about her past. Has Andrea got everything wrong? Is she really working for the good of the world or just pursuing her own twisted agenda?
