Third Angel presents

Believe The Worst

Somewhere in the near future, deep within the bowels of the Corporation’s business empire, three employees inhabit a grubby little office. It is antiquated, under-resourced and smells slightly of damp. They have been passed over for promotion and forgotten in departmental reshuffles. They work so much overtime that they don’t even bother to go home anymore. They have been subsumed by the Corporation to the point where they have forgotten how to speak to one another. Until today.
