A corrupt young man somehow keeps his guilt clear, but a special computer program gradually reveals his inner ugliness to all.


By the year 2120, after the XXI's Century crises, and the terrible Great Third War also known as the Religions War, Earth become the perfect balanced place everybody dreamt about since the beginning of our modern civilization. 
A hundred years previously, during the war, a giant web of aero-cities has been constructed in the planet’s atmosphere to take the wealthy elite.  "The Colonies' were built as huge cities all linked, to a central capital that in its greatness is a metal copy of all great cities on earth, where a continuous rain keeps the place closer to the sun, cooler. 
Since, it degenerated into a lawless hell, as the end of the war change The Colonie’s purpose and the rich did non depart, instead the United Nations, as the new order leader known now, impose new rules for society and decided to use the stations as the deporting place of the outlaws of the society. To this day, they still deport every individual who breaks their peace or their strict rules. As much as a year of being single, without having a family as the new constitution states, makes an individual eligible for deporting. (History repeating with a twist, much like the history of America) 
The new created society, now 100 years old, became a state of its own, existing by its own rules.  The Colonies are ruled by a high class of self-proclaimed corrupt aristocrats who maintained their wealth and The Colonies existence with the only output the place can provide: human organs.
When DAN GRAY first arrives from Earth, he is fleeing a personal tragedy.  His youth and innocence attracts the attention of BASIL, a computer scientist who copies his perfect clean memories and feelings touched by real nature, that is not to be found amongst the locals, onto a disk, to create a program for helping to rehabilitate the Colonies' criminals. Basil gives the prototype to Dan as a gift for the help he was looking for, now for years. 

Dan is a police commissioner and soon comes into contact with the city’s legal trade in body organs.  He is warned not to interfere since the trade is sanctioned by the state and run by the Mayor, HARRY to whom he is soon introduced.Harry takes a lustful interest in Dan who in return, struck by memories, falls in love with SYBIL VANE, a girl from the underclass, whom he releases before she is supposed to go under the knife. The girl reminds him of his late wife Anne, who died refusing a transplant a year back.  Sybil gets pregnant and at her mother’s advice she hides the fact from Dan. As she gives birth to a baby girl, Dan suspects her of having an affair and he is furious.  His fury leads to an accident and she is killed. 
Dan’s mind flips altogether and he offers his full services to Harry’s vile trade, but not before asking God in grief to help him in his strength of fighting his own guilt. 

Years have passed and Dan became the Chief of Security in charge of the trade, renounced for his brutality.  Ten years later his power and fearful presence have created a mystique about him.  Furthermore, his dissipated lifestyle of drugs, women, and murder has not aged or bitter his conscience.  He looks as fresh as when he first arrived.  However, the computer program, of which he now holds the only copy, has changed.  Dan’s virtual image is a hideous monster, having taken all the guilt that Dan long since abnegated. Dan is not unaware of his lack of emotion.  Memories of Sybil and Anne haunt him, and he hates himself for being unable to return the affection of a new woman who adores him. 

Meanwhile rebellion is brewing amongst the underclass.  Dan gets wind of it and organizes an attack on their underground headquarters.During the fierce gun battle, Dan finds and recognizes Sibyl’s blind old mother.  He studies her, as if seeking redemption, but she is killed, right after she gets to tell him about his daughter, Anne.  The underclass are beaten and rounded up en mass.  What’s left of the impoverished families is herded up to the transplant clinics.  Here Dan spots the ten-year-old girl who reminds him of Sybil.  The thought of this innocent being his daughter, now set to be strapped to a chair and being cut open and forced to deliver her organs, causes him to let her go. 

It is New Year’s Eve and he goes to Harry’s party to resign his post.  Harry refuses to take him seriously and Dan rushes out.  Meanwhile Dan’s alter ego has grown to such strength it has infiltrated all the city's electronic control system.  Realizing Dan is about to delete it, at only his thought, the monster takes self-action and blows up Harry’s house.  However, Dan escapes unharmed.  
He arrives at his apartment to discover the image has actualized into a huge electronic monster, who knowing his thoughts now already took all the action against his will. As a last punishment for the whole society of the Colonies it and stopped the rain, which was cooling the place. Inhabitants are desperate as they are burning, being fried in the metal cities closer to the sun. Daniel tries to escape, but the monster enters him.  In full view of the city, Dan becomes a Gargantua.  He inflates to such proportion that he finally disintegrates over the city.  As the city was on the brink of destruction with the monster going out of control, everything turns now back to normal as Dan dies. Rain begins to drop, and all the advertising holograms turn on, picturing the innocent face of Dan.
