​In a world dominated by the Internet and a corporatocratic empire, an unemployed individual, forced to enroll in the Empire’s Optimisation of Biological Function Assistance Program. Amid the dark age, he learns from others that rebuilding subjectivity is possible, even in seemingly impossible situations, offering hope in a superficially resplendent era.

Director Statement

Is it possible to create a documentary film about a future world?

This question has nothing to do with reality or fantasy, but rather about the fact that at this time, we live in societies of extreme economic inequality created by the Empire. If we do not imagine possibilities for the future, then the future will be the same as now—or even become a Dark Ages of greater inequality.
