Circle is a science-fiction drama set in two different time period, the present (2017) and future (2037). The story tells how the appearance of an alien on Earth in 2007 leads to the birth of the Human B system, a technological discovery that can lock people’s memories and convert them to videos. This system is being used in Smart City, a place where no crime exists and people’s emotions are partially controlled. The drama centers on two twin brothers — one is the key to the system and the other one is responsible for its eventual destruction.
