In the 21st century the world had hit a crisis with mental health, the demands for caring for people with mental health conditions were dire. Few people wanted to take responsibility for anyone with any mental health problems, in the United States of America alone people with serious mental health conditions were falling through the cracks in the system. Victims had very little sympathy shown to them and often landed in emergency rooms, county jails and on the city streets. These so called ‘lucky people’ were ending up in the morgue according to U.S.A Today, a popular newspaper of this time.
It was the year 2180 the world had changed as technology had advanced and scientists were inventing things that would have been thought impossible in the 20th century. However one of the most amazing inventions came from a Norwegian scientist called Jon Ulrichsen, he had created a machine that was capable of analysing and curing brain dysfunctions. Ulrichsen along with his daughter Kristina with assistance from other scientists put together an invention that Kristina named ‘Brainstorm’ it was like a scanning machine but did far more than this, it became multi- functional and even cured such things as Alzheimer’s type dementia, vascular dementia and repaired brain damage. The invention was revolutionary but it appealed to not only scientists and surgeons but terrorists who planned to steal the equipment and kidnap the scientists so that they could use the equipment to take over governments all over the world. It was decided by the world powers that Brainstorm was too dangerous and had to be destroyed along with the scientists. Both the Americans and the Russians formed their own strategies to destroy the equipment and the Americans called the mission ‘Operation Brainstorm’
