Imagine a world where you are defined by algorithms, corporations are the government and your social media influence determines your home, job and friends.
Set in a speculative near-future London, Fluence is a satirical story of aspiration and desperation and of power seen and unseen. It’s a story of control and consequence.
It’s the week before the annual Pay Day when strata positions are decided by the controlling corporations. The social media feed is frenetic with people trying to boost their influence rating while those above the strata and those who’ve opted out pursue their own manipulative goals.
It’s the story of the extremes to which Amber and Martin are prepared to go in these last ten thousand minutes before Pay Day.
