In the totalitarian state of Utopia, the top scientist developing the super chip that will propel the country to technological supremacy in the world is detained by the state security bureau. His best friend and the head of the state’s semiconductor joint venture Shan Hongbing needs to know why. As he digs in, he realizes that the eyes are also on him for asking questions. The state’s surveillance technology he reveres—which ‘keeps the citizens safe’—has now turned against him, tracking his every move at every turn to hold him in line with the Utopia’s principles. Hongbing’s attempt to get to the bottom of the mystery slowly unravels a web of politicking, espionage and betrayal, whatever it takes for the ruling party to achieve its cause. The moment he decides to flee from the system is also the time he finds himself no longer safe.
