Runners are contacted by a desperate father who is looking for his son. The boy was kidnapped, along with several other children from Redmond, during an corp-sponsored assembly at a Renton school 2.5 days earlier. Ransome was demanded, but the families could not afford to pay. Moved by the father's plight, the runners accept and head to the school. Once there, they learn a bit more about the attack and people thanks to Leaf's magic touch and Hurricane's knowledge of tactical maneuvering. They head to the Barrens to visit the Crimson Crush, who look a bit worse for wear thanks to the beatings doled out by a woman of the local dance troupe and then the runner team that hired them to watch the kids. After a mysterious fire that engulfs the gang's hideout, that Growth may or may not have had something to do with, the team searches for the woman and finds her in battle with the runner team. Growth, Leaf and Hurricane make quick work of the other runners and conference with the woman about what to do with the kids. It is agree that most will go back, but some will stay with Simone as they are in a bad situation with their parents. A job well done.
