In “Model Minority,” a Superman-like figure attempts to rectifiy police corruption, only to find his efforts adversely affecting their victims. “Radicalized” is a story of a darkweb-enforced violent uprising against insurance companies told from the perspective of a man desperate to secure funding for an experimental drug that could cure his wife's terminal cancer. The fourth story, “Masque of the Red Death,” takes on issues of survivalism versus community.
