Synopsis: In a future prison, inmates are not locked up for years – they’re connected to an accelerated simulation that allows them to serve their entire sentence in a few days. What these inmates don’t know is that before they’re released, they undergo a “Parole Simulation” that seems utterly real – and their moral resolve is tested in their most private moments.
In this way, only the truly reformed are deemed “corrected” and released back into society. Cyrus, a lonely parole technician, becomes obsessed with Alice – an alluring and sociopathic inmate that the system seems unable to reform. While most inmates are corrected and released quickly, Alice has failed nearly a thousand Parole Simulations. Cyrus tries convincing Alice to undergo a procedure that will radically alter her personality, so she can finally be corrected and released.
But Alice has her own plans. Despite having her memory wiped between Parole Simulations, she gets to Cyrus – seducing him and chipping away at his sanity … until it’s not clear who has the upper hand.
