Another day, another dystopian future. They fall like so many rotten fruit at the end of a short season where you are understaffed and losing the fight against the insects. See, we can do analogies too. This is a story about your future. It is not a happy future, but then we have been noticing that your present is rarely happy so maybe this makes a kind of linear sense. In this future the government is doing bad things. Hmmm, we are beginning to see patterns here. No one will speak up against the bad government. Need we say more? The bad government hires assassins and others to make things look better. The assassins soon learn that their bad government has been lying to them and that not everything is as the bad government says it is. In the end, who can you trust? The assassins who would just as soon kill you as pay for your lunch or the bad government who would just as soon you have no lunch at all and just shut up? We may have to watch this one again just to make sure it really is about your future and not a more contemporary offering. At least there we no robots in it.
