The Unidentified explores consumerism, corporatisation and privacy in an online world. It asks questions about the identity and self-worth in a society governed by pack mentality, and provides a gutsy heroine who questions authority and tries to stand her ground. Great concept and some really good platforms for further discussion, but the story itself held no great surprises.
