Brief synopsis

In 2089, Sojus, the last remaining mega city on Earth is ruled by the Communist Party.

Seven decades from now, the beloved Comrade General Secretary ELISABETH VON LUDWIG struggles to keep her son and only heir ATTILA VON LUDWIG on the socialist track and away from his lover, the democratic rebel and hacker ROSA PRYCE.

Twenty yers after the Third World War, the nature and planet's resources remain devastated. Almost all resources of the megapolis Sojus are focused on generating fresh air and synthetic food as well as developing artificial intelligence.
The future communist system with its basic income for all, serial brain chips, digital landscapes in communistic cyberspace and streamlined vouchers for food and gas are small, singular steps towards the ultimate goal: the socialist ideal of a peaceful and responsible society. In order to fit into that path, the human being is to be guided into self-awareness - with all means.
