Long Yen works hard to be a good dragon's son, doing everything his family asks him to do, even if it involves being a money launderer or stealing a miner's ID.
After being arrested, a strange, foreign lawyer insists Long Yen turn against his family for his freedom.
The word games Long Yen plays with the lawyer feel like part of a decade's old con, the pieces put into place before Long Yen was born.
However, even in the future, the price of freedom remains the same.
