Set in an unspecific future, LEADERS* protagonists struggle for freedom within a dystopian world. In the course of the first episode, we accompany NN - the protagonist - during a conspiratorial data transfer. NN collects data chips from three robots with whom she
immediately forms a conspiratorial alliance. The avatars’ subversive behaviour is accompanied by an erotic exchange that mutates into their form of communication and resistance. While trying to survive in the capitalist’s ruins they have inherited, they embark on a quest for
collective futurity, performed and embodied as a constant longing for a utopian togetherness.
