Far into the future, the utopian society of Bliss enjoys every comfort, sustainable food sources and advanced technologies. They believe themselves to be the only survivors of the long-ago, unknown viral calamity. This self-contained community allows their denizens to spend their time pursuing intellectual interests or just fishing and relaxing by the shore. Unexpectedly, they discover a mysterious radio signal which seems to indicate there may be life outside of their enclave. Driven by curiosity, a team known as “The Crew” ventures out from Bliss to investigate the source of the signal. They discover a bizarre, segregated society where tyrants horrifically abuse and subjugate an entire civilization to their evil will.
