A tribute to George Orwell’s 1984 and a cry of protest against totalitarianism of all kinds, 2084 tells the story of a near future in which Islamic fundamentalists have established a oppressive caliphate in which autonomous thought is forbidden.
It is the year 2084. In the kingdom of Abistan named after the prophet Abi, earthly messenger of the god Yolah citizens submit to a single god, demonstrating their devotion by kneeling in prayer nine times a day. Autonomous thought has been banned, remembering is forbidden, and an omnipresent surveillance system instantly informs the authorities of every deviant act, thought, or idea. The kingdom is blessed and its citizens are happy, filled with a sense of purpose and piety.
Those who are not the heretics are put to death by stoning or beheading in city squares. During his wanderings throughout the kingdom, however, Ati encounters people who think differently; in ghettos and caves, hidden from the authorities and their ubiquitous surveillance, exist the last living heretics and free-thinkers of Abistan.
