Do you know what happens when you stare into television static?
“I don’t have a television.”
Christ! That’s right, I’m sorry. You know, I could get you one. It’d be no problem. Actually, it would be a bit of a problem—no electricity, zero reception—but I could sort something out. I could make it work.
“I’m good, my eyes have long since deflated and now sit folded like rotting sheets in the fouled cup of their sockets, anyhow.”
Wow…
“What?”
Nothing.
“What?”
Just you’re… um, very descriptive.
“Well, I have had a long time to sit here and paint the things that I cannot see.”
Do they hurt? Your eyes? Do you hurt??”
“Nothing hurts. Nothing is anything, not anymore. But you know that.”

When innermost thoughts and feelings are laid bare, you must face the truth.

Psychological thriller from Hari Navarro. Dialogue competition winner.

Zero Hour 2113 – Launches 23rd January 2021

London, 2113.Racked by riots and ruled by corporations, London has grown to house over twenty-million people. Its limits stretch across the south-west of England.Pollution chokes the skyline, hiding the stratoscrapers of The Mile, London’s exclusive centre, from sight; though its gaudy neon signs penetrate the smog. Corporations rule after the collapse of the mid-2000s. The NHS, under strain from underfunding and the barrage of pandemics, chemical attacks and terrorism, found itself sold off, piece by piece, to the highest bidder. The augmentation companies moved in; buying what they liked. The National Health Bank rose, supplemented by other privatised care centres.
