ObJects

by Ian W. Hill

directed by Ian W. Hill

 

At the end of the Nation, the United States is ruled by geographic/corporate fiefdoms that can't hold the place together anymore (and a practically non-existent government), with a populace so overwhelmed by technological future shock and infotaining bread & circuses that it has lapsed into near-catatonia, and can no longer actually DO anything anymore. One visionary, an eccentric capitalist diva, Mrs. Franklin -- founder and CEO of the Kronos Corporation -- secretly plans with brilliant young biohacker Miss Lee Lightfoot to create a "positive plague" -- a modified contagious disease that will infect the brains of US citizens and make them process the modern world better and faster (and make them once again better producers and consumers). The top dozen members of Kronos -- a collection of MBAs, surgically-modified psychics, backbiters, yuppies, and body servants -- debate the pros and cons of the plan, and try to figure out how to make their names and/or fortunes as part of it, as the disease turns out to have unexpected consequences . . .
