“True love is real and Soulmate will find yours.” This is how Everlasting sells Soulmates, its revolutionary software which is supposed to put an end to the inexorable decline in the birth rate. In this post-apocalyptic world, submitting to the choice of the algorithm that can find your Soulemate, and wearing the related tattoo, quickly becomes obligatory to keep your job, live in the best neighborhoods, and have a decent future.
Except that As’ results are negative: “No correspondence in the database”. Unable to face her future without this vital soulmate, As eventually recovers hope when Everlasting offers her to test a new version of the software.
A few days, after the injection of Soulmates 2, As’ tattoo appears. Over time, she penetrates the thoughts and feelings of her soulmate.
Each system has its flaws and she is about to discover just how bad it can get.
