Description

The Future Is Here. And It's Absurd.




Englishman Terrence has had enough of accountancy. After all, it's been his job for over six decades. He'd bow out if the government didn't keep increasing the mandatory retirement age. At this rate, Terrence will be working until doomsday.

American plutocrat Walter has harnessed the power of age-defying medication and enjoys the life of a conceited centenarian. But many are fed up with his kind. If the situation doesn't change fast, there could be a revolution.

With its dark humour and gripping narrative, Tomorrow's World paints a vivid picture of a future that's a little too close for comfort.
