Our dystopian society takes place in New York City in the year 2035.
The protagonist is a teenage kid, who like all people in that time period is always texting and never talks.
The teenager meets an old woman who talks to the kid (not texting) and teaches him to talk using his voice .
The teenager goes out onto the Lincoln memorial just like MLK, and reads a speech to anyone who was listening on how cellular devices are ruining everyone’s life. He ends up getting on the local news channel and inspires many.
The older women who the teenager spoke with ended up dying and he started to get depressed because they became close friends.
As he was depressed, he started noticing more and more people walking on the streets without their head buried into their cell phone. Over the years, less and less people used their phone for communication and more people just had normal conversations.
