For the Dreamers, this technology fails to work, and they're shunned because of their inability to adapt and evolve like the rest of the human race.
Amelia is a Dreamer. When she meets someone who helps her see through the veil of MMC's lies and secrets, her world is shaken to its core. Amelia has to decide whether to fight for the freedom to dream, or take the 'next step in evolution' with the rest of society.
Even if it means losing her ability to think and dream for herself.

AN OVERWHELMING fear seeped beneath my skin, forcing itself deep into my bones. My eyes adjusted slowly, and my heart beat wildly in my chest, prompting me to crouch and melt into the branches and thick bush around me. With a sudden flash, lightning stung the black of the night and lit up the area around me, revealing silhouettes of large silver-barked trees and masses of low bushes. To my right, I could sense something creeping silently through the trees, and fear sunk heavier in my chest.
Should I run or try to stay hidden among the leaves and twigs?
Shock sprinted through my body, but I stood dead still, straining to hear my pursuer through the rush of wind in the trees that bent and moaned in protest. A hint of shadow towards my right sent a surge of adrenalin through my veins, willing me to run.
Bounding up from my crouched position, I ran through the trees and shrubs that pulled at my clothes and tore at my skin as though they’d grown claws just to hold me back. The stinging cold of the rain burned my face and chilled me to the bone, but still I kept running. I could hear it behind me, so close I could feel its hot, heavy breath. Fear slowed my stride, and my legs betrayed me by buckling as my bare feet hit the soft muddy ground beneath me. My mind willed them to keep moving, but they couldn’t, or wouldn’t. Landing on the ground, I rolled onto my back in the mud.
