Eager to visit her foster family, Mair Koda, an independent trader, lands on Vernet, but all is not well in the peaceful settlement. Her adoptive father, Arn Stonelaw, won't speak of what's wrong, but his son Yuri will. Yuri's brother Kristoff, and all of his friends, have been taken by the Imperials. They have been indoctrinated and are being trained as soldiers in a nearby garrison. 
Yuri begs Mair to help him rescue Kris, and she eventually agrees. They infiltrate the base at night. While Mair, disguised as a scout trooper, keeps guard, Yuri sneaks inside the barracks to get Kris. Unfortunately, he finds that Kris is too brainwashed - he has no desire to leave, only wanting to serve the Empire. 
Mair is forced to shoot a guard when he challenges her. The shot wakes all the boys, and Yuri must flee. He makes it to perimeter of the camp before Kris confronts him. Yuri makes one last try to convince him, but Kris is set on arresting the "traitor" and taking him to his superior for "painful interrogation." Mair pulls Yuri into a creek, and they escape to her ship. 
As they leave the system, Yuri asks if it was necessary for him to leave. Mair tells him he would have been tortured as an example to others. But, she points out, there is some good news. Kris could have shot Yuri, but didn't - deep down, there is some part of him that still loves Yuri and won't hurt him. Yuri brightens at the thought, and vows that someday he will save his brother.
