The dystopian thriller series 3% takes place in a scenario where people are divided to live in separate worlds. The offshore is where only the elites live and is like a paradise. On the other side, people in Inland live in poverty.
But every year there is this competition called “The process” through which 20-year-olds are selected and they can go on to live offshore. The process is a series of tests through which many people get either simply eliminated or die and only 3% of the contestants get to offshore.
There are many people especially the ones who cannot pass the process protest such testing rule and the series is a classic example of capitalist society and its materialistic fetishes.
The third season of the series ended with Andre and the division taking over the council and declaring a war. Meanwhile, the group including Marco, Rafael, Michele, Xavier, Joana, Gloria, Elisa, and Natalia discuss a defense plan and decide to attack first by destroying the Offshore with an EMP. The fourth season might show how their plan works out or the problem they might face if their plan fails.
