    In a parallel present, deliveryman Ray tries to make a living and financially support his sick brother. After a series of unsuccessful scams, Ray picks up a new job in a novelty, strange field of the gig economy: he installs kilometres of cables in secluded woods and hills alongside other workers. The cables are supposed to connect huge metal cubes that, put together, create a new Quantum market. When Ray gets deeper into the zone, he’s met with growing animosity and the threat of robotic cable layers, and has to make a decision – either to help his coworkers or get rich and get out. Lapsis is a clever and entertaining story of exploitation on which technological companies often rely to uphold their shiny facades.
