Jim Cork is an unhappy man living in a future where all hope and inspiration have been replaced with security and routine. The scanners watch your every move and detect the slightest aberration from past behavior that might indicate you’re thinking of doing something…bad.

When a stranger slips an odd key into Jim’s pocket on a crowded subway, Jim must decide whether to continue living in a soulless world or risk his life to find something worth living for.
