The year is 2020. A viral pandemic sweeps across the globe. Nations close their borders as they fight for medical supplies. As the moneyed elite flee to island refuges, the masses retreat to their homes. They put up a brave face as governments become increasingly authoritarian. While scientists rush to find a vaccine, people venture out only for toilet paper, and rush back home to stare blankly into screens waiting to see men fight in a cage on an island. Meanwhile, prisoners are used to bury the dead in mass graves.
In the future, the year 2020 will be the only year in which history is viewed as fiction.
