by Deborah Yarchun
A darkly comedic thriller set in the future. Irene, a 28-year-old journalist, has recently had her job downgraded to editing AI (Artificial Intelligence) - generated articles. Her husband, David, is a cybercrime journalist who introduces more than enough technologies into their home, with unnerving consequences.
"Atlas..." explores where we're heading as a society and the complex benefits and destructive possibilities of a fully wired world.
