During an artists’ residency at a port in Germany and a period of intense research into the history of the global supply chain the narrator begins to notice something is amiss. A sense of rising anxiety peaks as they discover that the port itself seems to be trying to communicate with them.

A science fiction story based in real life dealing with containerisation, globalisation, self-driving vehicles, the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence, microwaves and AI.
