The year, 2113; the setting, Earth. The planet is a withered corpse. Ravaged by the climate catastrophes and nuclear wars of the previous century, human life has become impossible to support. Societies have either fought themselves into extinction or set off to colonise Mars. The plastic content in the oceans has destroyed all marine life and turned the water into a strange grey substance with the consistency of tapioca pudding. 85% of the Earth’s surface has become uninhabitable due to the merging of all four of the seasons into one year-long period of ultra-heat.

 

In the arctic circle, on the last remaining ice floe, a single tannoy and a lone polar bear. Over the tannoy, Ed Sheeran’s second studio LP X plays on a loop.

 

The polar bear gazes pensively out over the white wastes. These songs mean nothing to him. He sees the sun dip over the lip of horizon. Six months of darkness are come. He lets out a low grunt, barely more than a whisper. Somewhere in the swirl of his subconscious, he asks himself if he will survive this time around. ‘I need you darling, come on set the tone ...’
