The EGO OF COOL is a hardboiled thriller set 45 minutes into a future manipulated by deception, desperation, and despair.
THE COP: Officer Vickey Worthey works 4 the nearly unstoppable Gov-Corp monstrosity called the Truth Maintenance System. The last Work Order went bad, real bad. It got her killed, a cloned heart, and an E-ticket ride to the Twilight Zone.
THE CRIMINAL: Juan Sanchez, 4 days out of prison and with debts to pay, immediately joins a mercenary gig directed by a mildly insane Colonel McLove. Juan wants 2 change, but he is El Alacranro, a scorpion hunter, a killer of killers, and can never change.
THE CASUALTY: Switch is the Biological flesh around “the Wire,” a piece of Outlaw Technology fetal graphed to brainstem. The memory is fuzzy, but the bruises testify 2 violence as she hits reality hard, prison cell top bunk as a Blank, no file, no record, and no past, except a conviction of Murder.
