Soundtrack To An Imaginary Film: One

The near future. A clear divide has opened up between the wealthy and the poor with no middle ground. The wealthy live in technology rich apartment blocks in segregated areas, spending their lives without ever setting foot on the ground. The poor occupy the spaces around and beneath, living in the shadow of an easier life. The drug of choice is now a micro SD card that is inserted directly into a surgically created slot at the base of the neck, for the poor it is a crude surgery, often resulting in permanent damage, for the rich, it is painless and safe. The best programs are circulated amongst the apartment blocks, only finding their way to the ground dwellers years after they are no longer fashionable or corrupted.

There is a revolution coming.
