Connor Lassiter, a troubled teenager lives in a world where teens with bad behavior can be "unwound" or dismembered limb by limb. Connor is trying to convince his girlfriend to run away with him
It was a dream. Reality got in the way, that's all. And running away doesn't solve anything
Running away is the only way to save my life. i'm being unwound in case you forgot
Connor is running away and there is a bus carrying other unwinds and a tithe that he holds hostage named lev to prevent being arrested
stop struggling I've got a gun
stop you can have whatever you want
Connor and his now friend Risa are sent to the "Graveyard" where they will spend their time working under the eye of the general until they turn 18; the age where they can no longer be unwound.
welcome to the Graveyard. This where you will be held until you're 18
After the general is attacked and risa and Connor take him to the hospital, they are caught by juvey cops and are sent to happy jack harvest camp to be unwound. connor is on his way to be unwound
No Please !!
It's time for you to be unwound connor
Lev and two of his friends known as "clappers" blew up the harvest camp freeing the unwinds, but in the process caused Connor to lose his arm. Risa and Connor escape and connor is taken to a hospital
Lev hat did you do?
At the hospital, Connor assumes the identity of a guard that was injured in the explosion. Connor receives a transplanted arm, one that looks just like the arm of an unwind that he knew at the harvest camp
Good morning Mr. Mullard we finished your transplant, how do you feel?
