2034 is the story of a day in the life of Helen and Bill Maloney, a semi-retired Oxfordshire couple from Headington who are about to have their whole world turned upside down by a chance phone call from their daughter, Katherine. Set in 2034, England is a semi-socialist world of 24/7 security surveillance where everything from the sky to the bees in Bill's garden are patented products of a burgeoning and untouchable genetic modification industry. The only problem is that people like Helen and Bill have so far managed to anaesthetize themselves from the world around them. How long however, will the anaesthesia of their day-to-day lives really last? And what will it take for Bill especially to be able to appreciate just how morally and spiritually wrecked the world around him really is?
