'Utopia Falls' Episode 1 sees New Babyl's youth vying for the Cultural Ambassador crown amid a new discovery
The first few minutes of 'The World is Yours' showcases the inner workings of various sectors in the city of New Babyl
Hulu's latest and first-ever sci-fi musical 'Utopia Falls' introduces us to a world in the distant future and its inhabitants, all of whom are driven by a certain purpose and live in harmony for the collective good of society.
The first few minutes of 'The World is Yours' showcases the inner workings of various sectors in the city of New Babyl. While the Nature sector can be seen harvesting insects and worms for medical reasons, the Industry Sector is in-charge of the advanced technology that offers comfort and ease.
However, the youth in the city are entirely focussed on the upcoming event Exemplar, which is the greatest competition New Babyl has ever known.
A total of 24 candidates from different sectors are selected by authorities and the chosen ones consider it an opportunity of a lifetime to honor their founder Gaya and also, the title bearer is expected to carve a path of righteousness for the next generation, with their impeccable talent.
We find the lead characters in the chosen participants, who are sent to the academy prior to the commencement of the competition.
Aliyah (Robyn Alomar), the independent and ambitious daughter of a government official, also the protagonist of the series, is selected from the Progress Sector for the Exemplar. Mags (Mickeey Nguyen) and Bohdi (Akiel Julien) are from the Reform Sector while Sage (Devyn Nekoda) represents the Nature Sector.
Meanwhile, Authority Phydra (Kate Drummond) observes that there has been a breach in their system, which is indicative of an unauthorized entry or exit. Just when we begin to wonder if New Babyl will face a threat, the participants decide to go to attend a party in the outer limits of the city.
Towards the end of the episode, Aliyah and Bohdi accidentally enter a library located in the depths of the woods that comprise records of all past researches. While going through various genres of ancient music, Aliyah and Bohdi stumble upon Pop music, which leaves them startled.
Will the ancient genre of music help the youth of New Babyl honor the principles of their great founder by using its power to bring about a revolution?
All episodes of 'Utopia Falls' are available to watch on Hulu.
