Omniscient Plot: What is it About?
‘Omniscient’ is set in the future, where government has put the citizens under strict surveillance by deploying tiny dragonfly-esque drones that keep a visual record of their activities for privacy and safety reasons. Nina, who has grown up surrounded by the drones, despises their existence. However, she ends up getting an internship at the very organization that manufactures them, i.e. Omniscient Systems. The system that boasts that drones are responsible for the drastic reduction in the crime rate in the area.
One night, as Nina heads home for dinner with her father, she is shell-shocked to find him lying on the floor, soaked in blood. He has been shot on the back by someone, but who could it be? She calls the Omniscient System’s Emergency, only to learn that no case of murder has been reported by the drone. But she is certain that her father’s drone has been filming the horrific ordeal the entire time, and rushes to the system chief to request for the footage but is turned down. The system asks Nina to keep the matter confidential.
Nina’s friend Daniel and detective Judite Almeida join Nina’s mission to uncover the truth behind the faulty drone and find her father’s killer. In the process, they discover some dark revelations, which confirm that the system is not as safe and idyllic as it claims to be. Now Nina must go against the system to find out what they’re hiding.
