Blood Zero Sky reads like the 21st Century bastard child of Brave New World and1984, as directed by Ridley Scott. Set in a very near future, it starkly warns of an all-too-possible future where rampant capitalism and unbridled consumerism have allowed a single corporation to amass all the power in the world. Where innovation has stagnated because there is no competition anymore. Everybody’s identity is coded into small cross-shaped chips implanted on the cheek and your every action and thought is monitored.
Religion, once a tool of government, has realigned itself with the Company to promote hard work and unquestioning obedience. Gender conformity is reinforced, and May, a lesbian, has to repress her desires and hide her individuality from the world. Yet, it’s the only life she’s ever known, so she’s worked hard to accept it and make the best of it. But when she has to deliver the shocking news that the Company will actually lose money for the first time in decades everything begins to unravel.
