A businessman inadvertently discovers the perfect way to target voter messaging and deliver election results to order. Guaranteeing an outcome is very big business. Big but dodgy. Millions of dollars are at stake as an elite team from the British Secret Service attempt to protect democracy.
Do elections ever really change anything? The American one in 2016 certainly did. The whole idea is that the people decide. But which people. All of them or just some of them. Digital innovation in the voting process will be great if its secure. That’s turning out to be a big if as the old tried and trusted paper based methods make way for electronic systems.
Seen through the eyes of three different people. London businessman Johnny Marriott- who has patented an automated system for profiling people. Investigative journalist ' Turbs' Turbanski - whose instincts unearth the potential threats to democracy. And Harry Shepperton and his specialist team from the UK secret service, who are charged with guaranteeing the integrity of elections and the future of the method we all currently use to choose our leaders.
The people should rule.
Pericles would be proud of them.
