A teenaged girl, Adelaide Pemberton, flees across the wintry, western Canadian landscape, away from an assassin set upon capturing her genetically modified guinea pig, in ‘GIG’. It is 2012. Australian-born Mick Hervey, latest proprietor of the Suffield, Saskatchewan Feed and Supply, is dead, victim of a mildly suspicious accident timed with the appearance of a newcomer, Physical Education teacher Albert Johnson. Her father curiously inheriting the Feed and Supply, Adelaide discovers an encrypted message in Mick’s ledger, directing her to her attic, where she finds an account of his involvement in secretive experiments, regarding her guinea pig, Gig. Albert Johnson, an assassin hired by a clandestine corporate cooperative to destroy all elements of said project, soon realizes that Adelaide possesses what he requires.
