Bill Brabham, a recently divorced and unemployed financial manager from Texas, is a man down on his luck. With nothing left to lose except possibly a few years of his life, he takes a high-risk, high-reward job cleaning up at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.
While in Japan, his luck drastically changes, and everything starts to go right for him. Unfortunately, his newfound luck seems to be coming at the expense of those around him.
His investigation into this phenomenon puts him in the middle of a dangerous criminal conspiracy, where he must contend with everything from the Yakuza to a sassy teenage girl with a penchant for role-playing.
