The economic situation is a nightmare: only 20% of the population is employed. The Actives live inside the city. On the fringes, in the Zone, live the Jobless. Separating them is a wall.

In a world where jobs are scarce, in a city where only 20% of the population is employed leaving 80% permanently out of work, a young woman, Izia, struggles to survive. She was born in what they call "the Zone". It's where all the jobless live, delineated by a Wall separating it from the City (where jobs still exist). Over time, tension has mounted between the two territories: some of the jobless have formed an uprising. This group, called the Activists, is stepping up acts of sabotage and pressure, and the balance of power has become tenuous. In an effort to calm things down, the Government has implemented a "Solidarity Job Act": 10,000 inhabitants will be selected from the Zone to work in the City, and will be paid as a result. For Izia, this is the chance of a lifetime: she absolutely has to find a way to be recruited. She can finally earn some money, maybe even a lot of it, and use it to hire the services of a smuggler to help her and her son Noah escape to the "South", where ...

Decent And Thought Provoking
15 April 2019 | by socrates17See all my reviews

Escapism aside, science fiction is at its best holding up a mirror to today's world. If it wants to also be predictive, there has to be a path suggested of how we got from "here" to "there", even if copious amounts of handwavium are used. The Expanse, for example, has this path. Trepalium does not. It's tough for me to see a path from "here" to "there", at least in the time frame given. But as a mirror held up to certain trends in today's world, it was spot on. The designs are exceptional and the overall mood is a bit Ballardian. Some of the buildings even reminded me of Ben Wheatley's excellent adaptation of High-Rise. J.G. Ballard is even quoted at the beginning of an episode. The acting is appropriate to the plot and the plot (once we accept that the world depicted exists) was good and didn't have any major holes. I'm glad that I watched it. Thanks to Sundance Now.
