Safe And Sound is the ninth episode of Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams. Inspired by Philip K. Dick's story "Foster, You're Dead," it was first broadcast in 2018.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

A small-town girl (Annalise Basso), already gripped with social anxiety, moves to a big city with her mother (Maura Tierney). For the first time she is exposed to urban society's emphasis on security and terrorist prevention. Her school days are soon consumed by fear and paranoia, but she finds guidance and companionship in the most unexpected of places.

Plot[edit | edit source]

In a near-future dystopia, the United States is divided between high-tech, hysterically paranoid "safe" cities and "bubble" communities where invasive technologies are rejected. A "bubble" representative moves with her daughter for a year of negotiations and life in the big city. While the mother tries to negotiate better treatment of the bubbles, her daughter struggles to adapt to school life, its social oddities, and the pervasive technologies around her.
