This futuristic America is changing and not in a good way. Rumors of bus loads of missing people, a dictator high on the rise, and the government allowing human testing. Then a call goes around for all children to take a placement test, to see where they match intellectually with the others. 10 children are chosen and only 9 make it through the final testing process. These children a geniuses and are taken to a special school where they learn whatever they want to. The public knows them as the smartest group of children in the entire world.... They are called the First Generation.
