This is your intermittent

reminder to get light.

If you are feeling noticeably anxious,

fatigued, or otherwise

not your normal self,

you may already be overdue for a session.

Stop by your local light clinic

and get your necessary exposure.

Do not forget, light is

a prerequisite for life.

Your Council of Health is here for you.

- Shame.

Open up!

We need help!

- This is a light clinic, not a hospital.

- I've got the credits.

Save him.

- Im sorry.

- I tried...

- Oh my god.

You have to get out of here, now.

They're part of the resistance.

- He's bleeding to death.

I can't help him.

- Save him!

- I can't.

I can't save him.

- Save him now.

- I know what they do to

people who help the resistance,

I can't.

Don't you understand?

You can't hide from them.

You need to get out.

You want him to die, don't you?

He's already dead.

You both are.

- The partisan has boosters.

He's heading for the ladder.

See if you qualify

for a procreation license.

Each hour you work is one hour closer

to obtaining your own license to family.

Inform counselors of transgressors.

To report a transgression in progress,

locate the nearest call box

to alert our Council of Security.

If you see a crime in

progress and do not report it,

you will be prosecuted

alongside the perpetrators

equally and justly.

- Hey.


I'll be back for you.

- Hey, he's going for the ladder.



- Come on, come on!



Disobedience alert.

Kill order in effect.

For your own safety...

- Move!

Get out of the way!


Let's go!

- They're setting up the pipe.

- Denizens, return to

your homes immediately.

Those who do not comply

will be treated as hostile.

Denizens, please.

For your own safety, return to your homes.

Load it!

They're gonna shoot him down!

- Stay back!

Let's get him!

- Ready the cannon!

If we hold them off

he might make it!

- Aim!
