    [synopsis] => A world where every human right has been violated and every notion of freedom and individuality is abolished. A world where Big Brother monitors everything through advanced technology devices. A world where the war against an invisible enemy never ends, thoughts go underground and any deviation from the dictates of the regime is punished relentlessly until it is "corrected". A world where those in power have the power to alter the past and deny the self-existence of reality, a world where language and its words change to keep up with the new
