Description - It far in the future. Earth is long dead from global warming, pollution and overall carelessness of the human race. However humanity did survive- colonization vessels were sent to planets thought to be inhabited, which made use of cryostasis (freezing). This is the story of one just such planet, and what it means to be human. In an attempt to not let history repeat itself an international organization was formed to control the planets population through use of death squads. There is a clear mandate- overpopulated areas should be culled, however strict laws are in place- no genicides are allowed, just Humanicides- killing is irregardless of race/religion/nationality/political affiliation/etc. this is the story of just such a death squad and the moral issues they face. In the future, to save humanity, humanity might just have to sacrifice what makes it human to survive. This flash is a dramatization of just such an event.
