In 2015, Sophie is called into a staff meeting – her working life is about to be turned upside down. She becomes the only employee of an otherwise staff-less supermarket as the powers-that-be push the boundaries of the retail trade. Her old colleagues have been relocated; her new colleagues are an army of self-service checkouts and a squadron of Click and Collect drones.
George is a mill worker in rural Yorkshire – his working life is about to be turned upside down. The workers have been respected for many years due to their strength and skill but a new wave of shearing frames threatens to disrupt the life that George has built for himself and his family.
His best friend, Benjamin, is ready to take action, but what he has in mind could create more problems than it solves. From cashiers’ tills to Luddites’ looms, Breakers explores the complex relationship between man and machine.
