Annotation

The story is set in a depopulated but high-tech future after a slow apocalypse produced by diseases and climate change. It focuses on a man living on the African coast helping to regulate the machines that are cleaning up the oceans and living in a simple hut on the beach living off the credits he earns and his interactions with his son and others, mostly at a distance through an unexplained wireless system.
