It is September 9, 2050. The great state of California is turning two hundred. And it is anything but coincidence that at midnight on the eve of the bicentennial, a child named Calafia Figueroa is born in a flagrant grab at publicity. Born...and then immediately kidnapped by a shadowy cult with its own ideas about how to capture an audience.

Calafia is the first of her kind, wired to broadcast every moment of life--from womb to tomb--to an audience with an insatiable appetite for the vicarious experiences of celebrities, none of them more celebrated than the Figueroa family. Her mother Poppy plunges into despair. But her uncle Sandy, an aimless stoner trying to recover from the trauma of being a teenage livewire star whose every boner was broadcast live to legions of fans, discovers a purpose in his life as he sets off to rescue his baby niece. From the blazing sprawl of the SanFrangeles Franchise, through the menacing dark of the Holy City, Sandy tracks the girl now known as Kalifornia with the aid of his half-seal friend Cornelius.

As entertainment intersects with politics and religion, Sandy finds himself at the center of a power-struggle much more than two hundred years old, but only now cutting its baby teeth.
