Ocean City I

Until the very last second

Ocean City floats out on the open sea, a modern, ecologically optimized floating city at the turn of the 22nd century. Everyone’s needs are taken care of at the highest level possible - assuming that each person works their average twelve-hour day in service to the system. The common currency is not money, but free time. Misconduct results in significant time reductions. Hardly anyone revolts against the system... until Jackson and Crockie discover that they can use an astonishingly simple trick to crack and manipulate the time administration system. But Crockie jumps the gun and starts the process too early, all on his own. On their way to school, the friends run into a time checkpoint. Instead of presenting his armband showing the amount of time left in his account, Crockie makes a run for it. And suddenly they are surrounded by security guards. They are armed - and they fire. Crockie is hit, though Jackson is able to get away. From his hiding place, he is forced to watch helplessly as the guards carry away Crockie’s lifeless body. Jackson reacts immediately: Under no circumstances can the secret police be allowed to find the treacherous device that Crockie used to tap into the time system. The only problem is that he has no idea where to begin his search in this city of 15 million citizens…
