In the year 2050, we are recovering from a catastrophic economic disaster, and population implosion. We take memory blocking drugs to cope, trade our freedom for security, and have given the state control of all children at birth to ensure that they all become contributing members of society. Captain Carl Onoway’s job is to protect children from adults who attempt to break free from society’s mould and reunite with their children. Following a traumatic incident Carl, receives a series of unusual messages that challenge him to remember his past, question his beliefs about families and lead him to play a double role that not even he himself suspects. What is a man to do when he finds himself on the right side of the laws of man, but on the wrong side of the truth?
