A world with no borders?

A world without war?

For billionaire shareholder Benjamin Michaels, that world is about to become his reality.

When Ben comes down with a terminal cancer in the year 2014, he undergoes cryopreservation to preserve his body until a cure can be found. 98 years later, he wakes up to the shock of a lifetime: money and capital are gone, all goods and services are freely exchanged, and everyone now works to protect and preserve the planet rather than destroy it. Is this the so-called communist future he had always feared would come to fruition?

    • Thank you for the tip! Will definitely use Reddit.

      Btw, I’m not that familiar with Reddit, and this is an open source collaborative film, we have tons of stuff to do, and we are looking for more help! So, maybe you could do us the honour of posting this on Reddit for us? That would be fantastic!

      If you want to be a part of our team, that would be great too!

      Thank you in advance!

  3. I’m impressed. I previously had started a science fiction story to do what you have done here. I used space travel to generate “the jump”.
