“Twelve inmates, one chamber. It’s time to face justice, live!”
Saturday night – primetime. The nation settles down to watch a special edition of Justice Live, the most popular, and sadistic, reality show ever made.
Twelve of the country’s most notorious criminals are paraded in front of the camera as the public vote to decide which one will face the horrors of the justice chamber. But correctional officer Cal Roberts has bigger things on his mind.
Tonight, he plans to bring down celebrity guard Dax Miller, for good. Tonight is his chance to put things right, once and for all.
Correctional is a near-future dystopian novel that examines themes of inequality, poverty, and the cycle of criminality, while simultaneously shining and uncomfortable light on our obsession with the macabre and sadistic. Black Mirror meets UnREAL in an Orwellian nightmare-scape.
