Plot summary

Metropia is set in a not so distant, terrifying Europe. The world is running out of oil and the underground networks has been connected, creating a gigantic web underneath Europe. Roger from Farsta (a suburb of Stockholm) tries to stay away from the underground. He thinks it's unpleasant and he sometimes hears strange voices in his head. One day Roger finds out that his life is controlled in every detail. He tries to break free. To succeed he needs super model Nina to help him. Or is it maybe Nina that needs Roger?
