A futuristic thriller about Athens.
2088. A concrete beach is placed where Omonoia Square used to be, and the Acropolis is now an island. Minas, a system pawn, is tortured by nightmares. He has no political conscience, same as everyone else at the time.
Everyone needs to be useful within this authoritarian regime. If not, they are deprived of the pill that allows them to remain human, and they gradually become animals. Some become cows and they are slaughtered and eaten by humans. Others become birds and escape from the window. Others become rats and live in the sewer, plotting ephemeral revolutions.
Minas, having the minimum of free will, is constantly sinking, losing everything he has. He ends up in the caverns deep under the city, along with a woman who had been frozen for a century in a museum, as he realizes that there is no place for him to be free. In this regime women have been equated with men, they have the same jobs, so that everything runs smoothly within this smothering society. Women are not tortured by their complex emotions, simply because they have none. There are two, however, who differ: the bionic prostitute who has the ability to feign emotions and the 20th century female, who had been frozen.
