Victor's Life

In the year 2004, animals have seized power from humans. For entertainment, they can order "ordinary human lives" to watch at home via pay-per-view. And tonight, "Victor's Life" is on. They watch his biography as if in jump cuts. Victor's failure is not down to tragic strokes of fate, but something shockingly banal: his lack of courage to make decisions, his unkindness, and his dullness.
