Synopsis

Once a rising star at MWyly Advertising Agency, Sam Gregory, has lost the confidence of his boss, the respect of his peers, and most importantly the creative drive needed to excel in the cutthroat business. Faced with creating the advertising campaign for what could secure the agency its largest client, Sam's growing suspicions over the client's product and ethical misgivings about his profession combine to threaten his job security and worse, his mental stability. Has he stumbled on a sinister conspiracy? A mysterious stranger fans the flames but Sam isn't sure who he can trust anymore. If only he could retreat into his favorite diversion, the fictional world of super spy, Victor Nil. But unfortunately for Sam, the life lessons of his fictional hero won't help him face the indifferent forces that shape the real world.

Following in the speculative tradition of Huxley's Brave New World, Individually Wrapped portends what our present society may come to be given its current consumer culture and fascination with new technologies. What are the sociological implications of living in such a society? We are now seeing the next generations grow up having never known anything other than the digital age and constant consumer scrutiny. How will mankind adapt to the incredible technologies being created at an ever increasing pace? Perhaps more importantly, how will
mankind be changed by them?
