This drama presents a group of highly talented, educated, but unemployed youths who feel wasted and betrayed by a government and society, telling them that in order to be gainfully employed they have to get an education and acquire relevant skills. They find that after the hard earned degrees their country shows neither the required interest nor plan to offer them any viable means of livelihood. Worse still, the industries and jobs have disappeared and migrated overseas as the government leaders collude with their powerful business allies to control and exploit the available cheap labor abroad for their own maximum profit. The disenchanted youths finally mobilize into an improvised camp to evolve radical strategies for changing the untenable social condition. But they soon discover that the promised road to change is littered and marked with chronic frustration and betrayal—even from within their own camp as they struggle with these stark realities.
