What if everything you believed or were made to believe in, turn out to be a work of fiction. What happens to the human spirit when the religion you were born in or the degrees you earned reveal themselves to be mere imaginary devices, constructed by a callous society to subjugate you into complacency. Struck with such an epiphany where does a man go then, to find meaning in his life or is it even worth pondering over an ephemeral existence saddled with the burden of imaginary social constructs. This is the dilemma our protagonist, 25-year-old Safaz finds himself in. His relentless pursuit of a fulfilled life pushes him to navigate through the complex minefield of Corporations, Education, Love, and Religion. His journey through each of these paths leads him closer and closer to revelations that threaten to shatter his hope of ever creating a Utopia in this world. What then, should  Safaz do to survive in a world he ultimately believes to be meaningless. Or should he simply embrace nihilism as his new religion and live the rest of his miserable life irreverently until the lights finally go off.
