"The only thing you can't have in Logan's world is your 30th birthday. Unless you run away."
"Welcome to the 23rd Century: A perfect world of total pleasure, With just one catch..."
"The only thing you can't have in this perfect world of total pleasure is your 30th birthday . . . Logan is 29."
In the year 2274, the remnants of human civilization live in a sealed domed city, a utopia run by a computer that takes care of all aspects of their life, including reproduction. The citizens live a hedonistic lifestyle but understand that in order to maintain the city, every resident when they reach the age of 30 must undergo the ritual of "Carrousel" [sic] where they are vaporized and ostensibly "Renewed." To track this, they are implanted at birth with a Lifeclock crystal in the palm of their hand that changes colors as they approach their "Last Day."
Most residents accept this promise of rebirth, but some realize it is a brutal population control, and go into hiding to avoid Carrousel. These fugitives are known as Runners, and there are Sandmen who are assigned to pursue and terminate them.
