A realistic portrayal of the future dystopian realities of the American healthcare system.

Willis Smith lives a Gen-Z nightmare. He has survived on temporary jobs, is unmarried, uninsured, and must care for an ailing mother. He is excited to start his first full-time job for a healthcare conglomerate, IntegraHealth, which will open the door to more affordable treatments for his mother and a more stable life for him.

After accepting a risky assignment from his narcissistic boss that could potentially add over a trillion dollars of business to the company, he meets an enchanting woman, Melanie Dang. As their relationship grows, he appreciates the successes of her extended Vietnamese family and community, but slowly realizes that much of their success comes from fighting back against IntegraHealth.

When IntegraHealth attacks the Vietnamese community, will Willis hold firm to the corporate narrative and his new financial security, or risk it all for Melanie?

RICHARD YOUNG, MD is an academic family physician and researcher in Fort Worth, Texas. Disgusted at the exorbitantly expensive U.S. healthcare system and its effects on every other aspect of life in America, he has extensively studied the toxic effect of expensive U.S. healthcare throughout his extensive medical career. He hopes 2060 brings discussion and change before fiction becomes a reality.
