Radioshow by Vanishing Point, based on the hailed sciencefiction book 'The Dispossessed' by Ursula K. Le Guin.

After a massive labourdispute, general strikes and civil war, a part of the inhabbitants of Uras, a capitalist planet, are let to leave the planet and start an anarchist utopia on another plannet.

On this new place dubbed 'Anarres', a true social experiment. The twin planets of Uras and Anara have pursued opposing socio-political ideals and thus avoided contact with each other for fear of cultural contamination.

200 years later, Shevek, a brilliant mathematician and physicist, has been invited to visit Uras. An invitation he accepts in spite of the objections of his fellow Anarans. In his quest for furthering research and examining how the society of Uras really functions, he is sucked into a conflict known from their old stories on how and why Anarres was founded...

A six part mini-serie based on the novel.
