    • Synopsis
    • In 2042, humanity is still in lockdown and suffering the restrictions imposed by the pandemic that had begun in 2020. No vaccines or drugs were successfully developed to fight the virus. The cities are divided into Districts where residents are monitored 24 hours a day by the Center for the Suppression of Social Instability. Within a rotation system, they are allowed to withdraw basic supplies through vouchers distributed by the government. Yod, the controller of District 666, monitors the mysterious Madeleine, an infectious disease doctor, forced into retirement by the System. Laura, Jeff and Lisa, who grew up together with Yod at the Orphans Unit, also live in the District 666. The four friends dream of living a normal life: with no masks or the limits imposed by isolation. Without the knowledge of the System’s directors, they come together to find out what is happening in other parts of the world.
      Laura offers online services to lonely men in exchange for vouchers with secret messages about what is happening in other countries. Jeff is a nurse and investigates sensitive data at the hospital. Lisa breaks into the System’s files and contacts hackers from other countries in the hope of finding leads to the presence of normal life outside the Districts.
      Madeleine, who is known to keep a big secret, is murdered by the System while trying to reveal it to Yod. Even suffering from the death of their neighbor, the four friends remain tireless in the search for more information to unravel the lies created by the System in order to achieve freedom outside the Districts and live without the restrictions of the lockdown.
