In the near future, the food supply of humanity will be threatened
by a growing population of insects which in turn will threaten the
agricultural industry. Coupled with a widening gap between the rich
and the poor, this will force the affluent to create
technilogically advanced cities of the future which will protect
the elite from the growing insect population and the growing class
of the poor. In these new cities hydroponic agriculture creates a
more advanced agricultural industry, and medical technology is able
to extend the lives of humans almost indefinitely by treating
residents with a regimen of anti-aging drugs.
In these cities of the future, violent crime is not tolerated at
all. When an agricultural scientist and resident of one of the
cities, Chesapeake City, is involved in a violent crime, the city
authorities begin to mix into his anti-aging regimen of drugs a
mild sedative with the intended effect of blunting aggressive
drives, but which also causes the scientist to be slower and less
productive at work. After the scientist begins to perform poorly at
work, and since he was previously involved in a violent crime, the
city authorities exile him from the city. He is then left
ill-prepared to deal with a harsh world which has changed much
since his youth ...
