Men have become mindless drones controlled by chip implants and a master satellite. Can one serial killer imprisoned for a thousand years give them the will to truly live? More
A serial killer incarcerated for a thousand years makes a plea to the citizens of the three worlds of Earth, as well the omniscient 'SkyBrain' that controls them, to finally be put to death.
But, in a future society, life in prison means eternity with absolutely no chance of reprieve–a ruling upheld at all cost. Detainee 01, though, holds an irresistible bargaining chip a thousand years in the making and employs a calculated move that even the almighty eye-in-the sky did not see coming.
The killer once known as 'Jack Frost', through the advent of a popular, but mysterious virtual reality programme that enables viewers to relive a prisoner's memories in exacting detail, finally gets the opportunity to showcase murders committed from his far-flung past. The public, accessing his memory banks, may choose to become the murderer, or, if brave enough, the victims themselves.
Despite the nature of his heinous crimes, Detainee 01's narrative inadvertently endears him to what has become a lacklustre, automaton society among which crime and individuality is non-existent. As a result, a most unexpected turn of events transpires to throw the SkyBrain's authority into question as well putting history itself into jeopardy.
