The not-so-distant future. The privileged few live inside a fortified, high-tech megacity while the majority struggle for survival in massive polluted slums. Liv arrives in a junk depot in a war-torn industrial zone seeking Nix, a smuggler who can get her past the barricades and into the restricted megacity. Both have hidden agendas, and when drone bombs trap them inside the depot and their true identities are revealed, Liv and Nix are plunged into a violent conflict that takes on many levels.
Burners asks this question: In a dystopian future where all hope is lost, can humanity and compassion survive? Burners has a gritty science fiction feel and a tense, action-packed story that will grip audiences as it explores significant issues of our present — a disappearing middle class, a seemingly insurmountable gap between the privileged and everyone else, and social and environmental justice for impoverished communities.
