Greed is bad, this simple morality tale cautions. A megalomaniacal C.E.O. sends his son into the dangerous African Congo on a quest for a source of diamonds large enough and pure enough to function as powerful laser communications transmitters (or is it laser weapons?). When contact is lost with his son and the team, his sometime daughter- in-law is sent after them. She is a former CIA operative and, accompanied by gee-whiz gadgetry and a few eccentric characters (including a mercenary, a researcher with a talking gorilla, and a a nutty Indiana-Jones-type looking for King Solomon's Mines), sets out to rescue her former fiance. What they all discover is that often what we most want turns out to be the source of our downfall.

Johnny guarantees delivery, for the right price, but he's paid a price of his own -- a heavy one -- for his chip-enhanced data-storage capacity; he's dumped his own memories to make room for the programs he smuggles for shadowy corporate clients. Now, he wants those memories back, and it's going to be expensive -- so expensive that he'll have to make one last run to pay for it.
