Her sprawling, polluted megacities are famous for exporting a quality product- human capital. Many of her citizens are being rigorously trained to be domestics, personnel, workers, & professionals of the highest quality, then exported to developed countries. Society is fragmented, with the urban populace living in a highly consumerist, corporate system, while on the fringes live the poor & displaced indigenous people.
One of these dislocated tribes have been known with a lifestyle, culture, & livelihood tightly entwined with the deep blue waters of the Philippines. Yet the seas had become so polluted & toxic due to uncontrolled industrialization that they were forced to relocate to the megacities, hoping to have a better life while keeping their culture intact.
Inam, a member of the tribe, feels confused & constrained by his roots. Lured by dreams of wealth & escape from poverty, he leaves his people to enter the capitalist rat race- by training as a domestic in one of the centers. At first the rigorous, totalitarian mental, physical, & psychological training goes well. But soon Iman starts to perceive the undercurrents of the system that tear him away from his identity & his roots.
