A worryingly plausible and chilling glimpse into an alternate Britain
Katrina Williams finds herself on the wrong side of social services. After becoming pregnant with only a notion of the father’s identity, she goes to live on a social housing estate. She is being bullied by a gang involved in criminal activity and anti-social behaviour. Seeking help from the authorities she is persuaded to return to the housing estate to work as part of Operation Schrödinger, alongside a surveillance specialist. But she soon realises that Operation Schrödinger is not what it seems. Exploring themes of social inequity and scientific responsibility, SmartYellow leads Katrina to understand how probability, hope and empathy play a huge part in the flow of life and are absent in the stagnation of mere survival.
