Severance - Ling Ma

| /
“To live in a city is to take part in and to propagate its impossible systems. To wake up. To go to work in the morning. It is also to take pleasure in those systems because, otherwise, who could repeat the same routines, year in, year out?”

Candance Chen, a young woman so devoted to her work and routine, barely notices when a plague of biblical proportions sweeps New York. She continued to go and eventually moved into the office as families flee, companies go bankrupt, and the subway stops. When Candace finally realizes she won’t be able to survive on her own, she finally leaves the empty city, rethinking what her life’s work means and what it takes to start society anew.
