A woman is walking alone through an abandoned city. She approaches the forbidden zone and tries to pass through. Everywhere the Morning Patrol and deceptive traps are watching. The city itself is alive but uncontrolled. Computer voices warn non-existing inhabitants to leave the city. The communication system works... cinemas show films... classic faces of a past era flash across TV screens. She is confronted by one of the few survivors guarding the city. They will come close to each other ; they will try to recall the past. Together they unravel their tangled memory - threads of this catastrophe and decide to penetrate the zone together ; They are linked by the bonds of violence and death since no other behaviour is possible in this kind of world. Is there an end? Is there hope and any future since no person that was allowed through ever returned to tell us whether the freedom of the sea exists. The fugitives encounter increasing dangers... A story of love in this unbearable world... ... Written by <nniko@ath.forthnet.gr>

User Reviews

Elegiac post-apocalyptic dystopia.
2 February 2015 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Post-apocalyptic wasteland somewhere in Greece.An unnamed female wanderer wants to reach the Sea.She attempts to traverse through decaying and crumbling nameless city where the members of Morning Patrol kill everyone they meet.Forbidden zone is extremely dangerous.But the woman manages to get help from a lonely guard in despair and so it begins their intimate link between love and death.Very moody and dark post-apocalyptic science-fiction/neo-noir flick with splendid location sets and dialogue excerpts taken from published works written by Daphne du Maurier,Philip K. Dick,Raymond Chandler and Herman Raucher.The plot moves slowly but visions of an abandoned dead-dripping city are mesmerizing.8 industrial collapses out of 10.
