    • Near future.
      A group of scientists discovered a way to a parallel world with two possible places for passage.
      One of them appeared to be in St.Petersburg, Russia.
      Very fast a technology of safe passing had been developed, and the parallel world had been studied. Civilization in that world went in a different way. Due to special fluctuations of force fields, people in that world have much better extrasensory perception, then we. And a lot of things are solved there not technically, but with a “power of mind”. That is why visually and technically that world is close to our Middle Ages, but with a strong power of “magic”.
      As though a legal status of the parallel world had not been stated, a big multinational media corporation purchased exclusive rights for using the passage and organized there a reality show “Fare Game”.
      The main city in the parallel world had been stuffed with cameras.
      Specially trained actors were sent there with different tasks: coup d'etat, serial murders, local wars, etc. Actors had to use only local weapons and equipment and were in real danger there.
      Each of them had a special implant, which make it possible for them to return.
      All missions were transmitted “live” to our media network. Millions of people here every day were watching other world’s people sufferings and deaths in a real time.
      Media ratings of the Corporation were fabulous. Popularity of actors – fantastic.
      One of the most popular actors – Arthur Bradley – is getting tired of his job. He has everything – money, popularity, social status. Every time he is in “show mission” he has to kill people. It never really bothered him, he just got tired.
      A Producer of the Corporation tries to make Arthur continue his career, but Arthur refuses.
      Then, after a few days, Arthur’s girlfriend – Olga – got kidnapped and found herself in… that other world with no implant for return.
      Now, the only way to take Olga out – is to bring her an implant. Arthur has no choice, then to start his last “show mission”.
      But according to Corporation’s scenario, Arthur has to organize a coup d'etat and to kill a king of the country. Only then Olga’s implant will be activated.
      At the same time Olga was found by local rebels. They are fighting against the king in order to stop all that murders and crimes, committed by “foreigners” and “silently allowed” by the king. Olga understands that “foreigners” are actors from her world.
      Rebels proclaimed Olga their leader because of extraordinary “magic power”, appeared by her in that other world. Olga, seeing all their sufferings, decides to fight to the end.
      Arthur arrived in that world and find himself an outlaw. Producer via other actors, managed to inform the King about Arthur’s mission, and all King’s forces are chasing Arthur, Olga and rebels.
      Arthur understands that the Corporation’s scenario implied his “last mission” in all senses.
      Now, in order to stay alive and return with Olga, he has to fight both – the King and the Corporation. He knows, that the Corporation will never kill him itself before the eyes of millions spectators. So, it will do what it can to stop him before the cross-point.
      Arthur finds Olga and suggests to take a chance to escape, but Olga refuses. Her duty now is to lead the revels and to change this world.
      Arthur stays with Rebels and continues his “show mission“, changing little by little his point of view on what he had done before. Now his duty is not only change that other world, but also to return and to change this one…
