At a party, Cee, a young artist-agent, suddenly gets caught up in a fake campaign. In search of defense, she learns that in secret, specialists are working to boost their clients' reputations - or destroy the reputations of enemies.

But the plan fails in full public view. Cee's reputation plummets to zero.
Socially ostracized and abandoned by her friends, Cee finds refuge in a colony of Zeros - outcasts who have built their own little civilization. Here she meets Albert, a mysterious young man who knows more about her than he is letting on.
