Synopsis

This story takes placed somewhere between the present and the future. Loosely set within the science fiction genre we enter a time when the government have declared societies urban youth as out of control and in need of readjustment. Sighting the medias glamorisation and endorsement of images of cultural resistance, namely hip-hops 'ghetto fabulous' aesthetic as a root cause of the problem, a new antisocial law has been decreed. It has been declared that any unruly youth must be rounded up and literally reprogrammed in order for them to fit more harmoniously into current society. The idea is to first remove from their mind images associated with the 'ghetto fabulous' culture and then implant a microchip containing a standardised alternative that allows them to quietly reintegrate.
