Welcome and introduction: Darija Simunovic

In 2060, humanity finally won the battle against the HIV virus and the world is declared AIDS-free. However, the pathogen of the immunodeficiency disease has not yet completely disappeared; instead, the virus has adapted and survives in a group of people. These people, called Zero Genes, now produce an intoxicating and addictive drug in their bodies that is excreted through their ejaculate and can be consumed by other people through skin contact. The drug, called Delta, and the Zero Gens are also soon declared illegal and are to be tracked down and arrested with the help of drug-resistant androids. But the androids are not quite immune to the effects of the drug either, as soon becomes apparent.
