“Trepalium”, French SF TV Series on Arte TV

    High concept science fiction thriller set in the near future

    It’s the end of the 21st century and society is in decline. The economic situation is a nightmare: only 20% of the population is actively employed while everybody else is jobless. The Actives live secluded within the city limits. On the fringes, in the Zone, live the Jobless. Two opposing territories in a dehumanized society. Separating them is a fortified wall. On one side, the Jobless—hungry, thirsty, in a state of total abandon. On the other, the Actives—forever terrorized by the idea of losing their jobs. Each camp expresses one facet of the same suffering: work, or the absence of it.
