When androids come to earth and make impossible demands, Paul Heart, messiah #18,432, becomes restless. On an impulse, he travels to China and meets Ato, a Taoist master, who teaches him wisdom he has learned over several lifetimes. Ato has been sent by higher powers to prepare Paul to lead the world to a new age. Despite the tense situation on earth, Ato has a lot of fun carrying out his mission.
