Los Angeles, California- Year 2299 The entire city of LA is fenced in by barbed wire it is just after WW3 the government has a new protocol where they want to ensure peace so they start in California and make their way across the country.
Charlotte Jones (#2299) She is turning 18 in a couple of days. Charlotte disagrees with the governments ideas.
Charlotte is turning 18. Her parents take her to get the chip inserted into her brain. After a couple days Charlotte realizes many people are acting different. They are all agreeing with what everyone says. And they are speaking highly of the government.The chip that is inserted into the brain is hardwired to alter someones thoughts and opinions. Each person is going to love the government and agree on every decision. Charlotte doesn’t like what the government is doing to her city and decides to run away to Nevada and warn the governor and spread the word that the government is brainwashing everyone.
Charlotte’s chip does not match her brain so she is not affected by the government's opinion. She tells her friend Marisa who doesn’t have a chip yet. Marisa decides to leave LA with Charlotte because they both don't like how they have to get chips in their brains. The government realizes the chip isn't working on Charlotte. Police go looking for her but can’ find her anywhere. They find Marisa, who they think is Charlotte on a bench and bring her back to LA. They figure out Marisa is not Charlotte. They interrogate her and threaten her to tell them where Charlotte is.
Right when Marisa is about to say where Charlotte is, alarms go off everywhere. All of a sudden Charlotte's chip starts to work and warns the government that someone escaped LA.
Charlotte runs as fast as she can, hoping to make it make to Los Angeles before her chip explodes in head. She reaches the fence surrounding the city. She is looking for a way in but can't find any. Charlotte sees Marisa and she comes over to help. They are trying to make a hole in the fence so Charlotte can crawl through. They can't do it in time and Charlotte's chip explodes, killing her.
