The economic situation is a nightmare: only 20% of the population is employed. The Actives live inside the city. On the fringes, in the Zone, live the Jobless. Separating them is a wall.

This French language series is available streaming on the US on Shudder, Amazon Prime, YouTube TV, and Sling.

There is a lot of plot in this in the pilot. I felt like I should be taking notes. Dystopian economics, oppressed underclass, revolutionaries, doppelgangers, toy and clothing rentals, corporate espionage, etc.

Its a lot.

As a side note, I have seen reviews that feel this setup is clearly intended as a metaphor for a pretty fraught real life situation. I'm going to look at this purely on its own terms and maybe for how it echoes increasing global class stratification. I'm considering that other parallel to be something of a third rail and one I am underqualified to delve into anyway.
