Ambition is a characteristic that people admire and value. Being busy all the time makes you come across as an important individual. It seems that it doesn’t really matter why you are busy, as long as you are. Working towards a goal has almost become more important than reaching it. This film is about the themes of ambition and the pressure to succeed in today’s society.


"In a dystopian society people, turned 18, go to a walled-off community where they will live and take weekly tests to prove their uniqueness. Evan, a fresh-faced 18 year old, is new to the community. He slowly learns the ins and outs of the place and tries to find out why his test results are worse than the others."
