Fame only costs your freedom. In 2046, American media personalities must obtain an officially sanctioned "performance card" or face internment in "terror aversion camps". Musician Amanda Casey is a rebel spreading the truth about her government's corruption via seemingly innocent love songs. What happens when she is found out?
Amanda Casey is a traveling musician. She mostly plays in small venues to bored apathetic college students, but underneath the veneer of her seemingly innocuous pop songs is a call to action. This is a very dangerous thing to do in the year 2042. The first round of legislation passed by the DHS Party controlled Congress and White House, after their landslide victory in 2036, was the issuance of "Performance Cards" to all members of the media and professional entertainers. All content provided by these cardholders had to conform to DHS standards. Those that failed to uphold the standards were sent to Terror Aversion Camps.
