Synopsis:

“In a not-so-distant future, the world is divided along the lines of class. In a post-terrorist world, three generations are explored in Eden. Adam has been raised by a military family to believe the State is protecting its citizens from terrorists, yet he feels out of place. On the first day of his military training he runs away and begins a journey for truth. Evelyn and her mother Delilah live in the undesirable sector as part of an underground network. Evelyn’s quest is to document the State’s lies in order to end the military rule. When Adam and Evelyn meet they learn that truth is not black and white, both have to accept their world view has been tainted by past generations of lies.” (From the CPO Website)
