Is it a social experiment, a prison, or a tool for driving one man mad?
The dome city is all those things. For Ef and his followers in City of England, it’s a kind of laboratory, a place to test Ef’s theories about how to give humanity a new way forward. For the founders of the Happiness-Program, awakened from stasis, the dome city is a prison where they are fed bizarre lies about the state of the world. For Iris, the dome city is the perfect opportunity to take revenge on the man who assaulted her, distorting his perception of reality until he cracks under the strain.
For Owena and Pickle, the dome city is a curiosity at most. Owena’s childhood was stolen from her, and now she intends to take it back – one bad movie and bag of popcorn at a time.
