Lisa is a young girl who wants to push the limits of human experience and free herself from the constraints of modern life. Her only problem is that she doesn’t have a dime to her name. Her best friend, a computer hacker trying to manipulate international marine traffic, might just have the solution for her: living and traveling as a stowaway in a shipping container.

Demonstrating a wild imagination and sparkling erudition, Nicolas Dickner is in top form here. Considered a unique writer in both Quebec and beyond, he is part of an elaborate family tree whose branches include Kurt Vonnegut, Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, Nick Hornby, and Haruki Murakami.
