New York, an alternate present: the quantum computing revolution has begun and investors are lining their pockets in the trading market. Building the network, though, requires miles of cables to be laid across rough terrain by unprotected gig workers. Queens delivery man Ray Tincelli (Dean Imperial) is skeptical of new technology, and the buy-in to start “cabling” is steep. So when he scores a shady permit, he believes his fortunes have finally changed. What he doesn’t expect is to be pulled into a conspiracy involving hostile cablers, corporate greed, and the mysterious “Lapsis” who may have previously owned his medallion. Called “a smart class-conscious sci-fi parable” by The Hollywood Reporter, LAPSIS is a darkly comic and timely look at the gig economy and the failed utopian promises of big tech.
