Beautiful World is a take on modern society’s image culture told through a dystopian setting.
It tells the story of how people lose their individuality in exchange for a recipe of beauty and popularity.
In a broken future, ink-like stains have appeared on people’s skin splitting the world in two. Now the beautiful people all wear masks and live in a luxurious haven kingdom where strict beauty laws are enforced. The others, ‘stainers’, are segregated to a lawless life in the Outlands ruled by chaos and warlords.
But when Chesterman, a mysterious, ruthless leader from the north rises to power with plans to bring the kingdom to its knees, people will have to find out what they truly want to live for beneath their masks.
Beautiful World is a grand scale story of Anna, Barvarik, Talessa and the individuals who will shape destruction, hope, terror and change to a broken future where only the most beautiful can sit at its apex.
