La Roquette begins in a mirror 1955, where a segregated dystopian society precipitates the aftermath of the Nazi victory in World War II. A war orphan, reclaimed by the Reich, Danika Schmidt is a regular pollinated teenager. Like her fellow “Polly” Americans, she is having a hard time fitting in. She isn’t blonde, nor an Arian, and she has a secret… Spending her school days sitting alone dreaming of a family and a heritage that she cannot achieve.
Her science teacher takes notice and pairs her with a fiery redhead “Thule”. Danika is soon seduced by her perfect Arian life, family, and opposite personality. When an innocent kiss between these two girlfriends is witnessed by the wrong eyes, Danika is suddenly left homeless, hunted and alone, devastated by the consequences of her deviant act. On the verge of hopelessness, she meets a mysterious man in a black fedora, an x-agent of the Reich Otto Rahn, who points her in the direction of an abandoned warehouse, and a journal from a buried and forgotten past.
Determined to put right what her naïve, love struck, actions have wronged, Danika sets off on a journey of self discovery. Following breadcrumbs of political scheming, Danika uncovers, and unknowingly exposes, an underground network of resistance fighters that have been ferrying ethnic escaped scientists and technologies out of Occupied America. Scientists with stories about the truth behind The Montauk Project, a secret Reich project in time travel.
Armed with an experimental jetpack, Danika rockets off on an adventure through time, to solve a mystery that calls into question the nature of the reality she lives in, and a chance to fix not only her mistakes, but the mistakes of history itself.
