Facevalue is everything. Those not born at the top of the ladder maneuver to climb. Many spend more time In than Out, plugged in through their internal chips. Skin-to-skin contact is abhorrent, and children are born via studs and dams, their characteristics carefully chosen by the prospective parents, for they too must contribute to face. And menials are created in beakers, subhumans trained to serve the top-tiers. A chilling look at a possible future, Face interweaves the stories of several individuals through their own voices, and raises questions about our obsession with technology, our humanity, our freedom.
