What if by trying to create the perfect world we instead end up turning society upside down and starting a war with the natural environment? This bleak future is seen through the eyes of a man living an average night in a corporate-fuelled future ‘super city’ which is patrolled by robots and automated transport systems. On this one night, like every other evening, he must rush home in order to meet the safety-imposed curfew. If he hesitates, he will be forced to fight for his life against an angry planet.
