Officer Collins has been in charge of the Human Hibernation Project, one of the US Army’s most clandestine trials to date. If the project is successful, its subjects will be stored permanently until they are needed. Joe Bauers, their first test subject, was not picked because he was superior. Instead, he was chosen because he is the most ordinary guy in the armed forces. However, after the experiment, a scandal breaks out – the base is shuttered, and the president denies any knowledge of the research – unfortunately, Joe does not wake up in a year, but in 500 years. However, during that time, human evolution has taken a dramatic turn for the worse. Joe takes a prison-assigned IQ test after waking up and discovers that he is the smartest guy alive. Joe is racing against time to address one of the country’s most pressing problems: the depleting plant population. He is awaiting a complete presidential pardon if he can fix this problem. But in the process, he alienates half of the country. Can he set things right and avoid a strange execution?
