The corporation sells ‘death insurance’. Those who don’t have it are forced to remain alive (in body only) as repositories of other people’s consciousnesses until any ‘life debt’ they had is repaid.
Vincent, a top insurance salesmen, firmly on the way up the corporate ladder, is secure in his work, sleeping with his boss, and able to afford an extravagent lifestyle, a life that many Wall Street brokers would envy.
One day he meets Lisa, part of an activist group that wants an end to the storage facilites and the release of the human data machines.
After Vincent fails to secure a rich client and is demoted, his one chance of regaining his former status is to infiltrate this resistance via Lisa.
Of course, Vincent is drawn to her, and questions his own values and his drive for power.
A very slick dystopian noir.
