Some call Bregna the perfect society.

Some call it

the height of human civilization.

But others know better.

The Goodchilds built Bregna

to ensure us a future.

They built the Relical...

a memorial to remind us

of what we've survived.

They built walls to protect us.

They tell us that outside,

nature has retaken the world.

But the real problems lie within.

We are haunted

by sorrows we cannot name.

People disappear...

and our government

denies these crimes.

The Goodchild regime provides for us,

as long as we stay quiet.

So we trade freedom for a gilded cage.

But there are rebels

who refuse to make that trade...

who fight to overthrow a government

that silences us...

who fight

in the name of the disappeared.

They call themselves the Monicans.

I am one of them.



We have an assignment.

We want you to sabotage Goodchild's

central surveillance facility.

Your entry will be noticed, but we will

briefly disrupt their interior alarms.

Surveillance is their greatest tool

against us.

As long as Monicans can be seen,

we can be targeted.

We need you to blind them.

Each mission brings us closer

to defeating the Goodchild regime.

This is my daughter.

Have you seen her?

She disappeared two months ago.

Help me, please, miss.

Have you seen this girl?

She disappeared two months ago.

Losing sleep? Having bad dreams?

Visit our sleep center for help.

Losing sleep? Having bad dreams?

Visit our sleep...

Shopping for me, Una?

Haven't you heard?

It's a special occasion.

My sister's finally coming to dinner.

Claudius and I

are looking forward to tonight.

For once, you'll be in the house

long enough to sit down.

That's why

I wanted to meet with you here.


I may not make it tonight, I'm sorry.

Don't be upset.

It's not that you can't come to dinner.

It's why.

You know,

I used to imagine you'd come with me.

We have different ways

of solving problems.

Yes. You ignore them.

How could I possibly ignore them?

Excuse me. This is my daughter.

I see the problems. I feel them.

And I'm trying

to make something good out of it.

- A life.

- What kind of life is it?

There are good things here.

There's one.

- So I have a surprise for you.

- Tell me.


So be careful.

And come back.

Losing sleep? Having bad dreams?

Visit our sleep center for help.

Losing sleep? Having bad dreams?

Visit our sleep center for help.

Possible Monican consort.

Three subjects.

Identification requested.

Possible Monican activity suspected.

It's not that you can't come to dinner.

It's why.

You know,

I used to imagine you'd come with me.

I think we have different ways

of solving problems.

This is the way things are

and I'm trying...

to make something good out of it. A life.

You're early, Claudius.

But they're everywhere.

We need to protect you from them.

This is how Chairman Goodchild

deals with Monicans.

But she wasn't...

She wasn't a Monican.

I had a family once.

I had a life.

Now all I have is a mission.



Aeon, Una.


Come back.


She will see you now.



We have an assignment.

One you've been waiting for.


We've intercepted information that

will allow us to penetrate his security.

We want you to eliminate him.

You should've sent me in earlier.

- That would've been suicide.

- Not for me.

Patience, Aeon.

It has taken a year

to get the information we need.

I know you want to do this for Una.

But you must remember,

this is larger than you.

She's not the only innocent person

who's been killed.

This is our moment.

We have never been stronger.

People are frightened, yes...

but if we show them the way...

they will rise behind us when he's gone.

I'm ready.

Tomorrow, Goodchild will be preparing

his address to the Council.

To reach the government zone, you

will need to cross the frontier garden.

Once you are through the garden,

you must move quickly to the Citadel.

The underground interior has been built

to be confusing.

We've implanted a route for you.

Follow it.

I want Sithandra with me

for the crossing.

Of course. Get to the Forum.

That's where

Chairman Goodchild will be.

You know what to do from there.


Do this and you will have your revenge.

And we will all have our victory.

Hello, Sithandra.

- Still can't surprise you.

- Not yet.

How are the modifications?


You should have it done.

I like my shoes.

Warning. End of civilian zone.

Do not proceed.

Warning. Do not proceed.



Warning. Do not proceed.

- Sithandra.

- Let's keep moving.

- We understand these now?

- Completely.

I'd keep off the grass.

- Rendezvous at 1620.

- I'll be waiting.

I agree with the policy

of targeting proven Monican threats.

But I'm afraid we're going too far.

We can't go too far with them.

There are advantages

to showing a degree of leniency.

We can't allow them the luxury of hope.

Not even one of them.

Brute force isn't the only option.

It's an effective one.

The Monicans are growing strong.

Soon, force won't be enough.

So you want to compromise?


The policy should be reconsidered.

- Put to a vote.

- The policy is not up for debate!

I'm debating it!

I'd encourage you to look at this

with a little more detachment, Giroux.

Here, we must be impersonal.

You wouldn't want me to take

your outburst personally, would you?

That is all.


I'm getting worried about you, Oren.

This edge you've taken.

Displays like that aren't helpful to us.

I believe in protecting what we've

created. I won't apologize for that.

This was created

to allow me to do my work.

I can't do that

if you can't control yourself.

- Understood.

- Is it?


- And what about the test results?

- All negative.


Find me a new test group by morning.

Maybe it's time

to give up on the tests, Trevor.

We're living the solution already.

This is perfection.

- Why can't you just embrace it?

- You see what's happening to people.

You know

how desperate this has become.

It can be contained. Controlled.

I think you're forgetting

that this was all meant to be temporary.

We've always said that,

but why should it be?

Because it's wrong.

Things change.

But I know you won't.

You know me.

I've been your brother a long time.

You're right about that.

Trevor, your speech.



- State destination.

- Forum.

Proceed forward.

Proceed left.

I know you have fears.

You have sorrows that shake your belief

and try your patience.

But now more than ever,

we must stand together...

because there are those among us...

who would tear down

what we have built.

The Monicans seek to divide us.

We must never forget who we are...

a lonely outpost, a tiny band.

We're all that remains of a people

that once covered the Earth.

We must adapt together

to these new challenges.

Remember what we have faced,

what we have survived.

We will adapt.

We have always adapted.

It's the fabric of who we are.
