If you loved the movies Gattaca and Minorty Report, and are a bit of a gadgets enthusiast, then I'm sure you liked what you saw. A feast for eyes were the sleek futuristic cars, people swiping huge transparent tablets, white sterile offices and voice operated equipments.
The series takes place in 2074, where many countries have gone bankrupt due to a number of crises and climate change. In the absence of effective government, powerful multinational corporations have become de facto governments, controlling areas called Green Zones. The remaining territories are called Red Zones, where government is weak or non-existent.
Ben Larson works as a manager at Spiga Biotech, the largest corporation in the world. He works for Elizabeth, the estranged mother of his wife Laura. In reality, he is a sleeper agent whose real name is Aaron, embedded in the company by the shadowy Terrence, who wields power in the Red Zones.
One of the objectives he pursues is the location of Iliana, the sister of Theo, another person who works for Terrence. He locates her working at Arcadia, an "executive club" which in reality houses sex slaves for Spiga executives. He resolves to work his way up to a senior position in order to rescue her. After framing his boss Chad for stealing classified information and ensuring his demise, Ben must work to get promoted to the now-vacant position and rescue Iliana, all while keeping undercover in the face of increasingly paranoid Spiga security.
