|Plot Summary of The Sheep Look Up|

|" Sometime in the fairly near future, mankind is beset by problems of overpopulation and pollution. But the same global corporate powers that created these problems are in control.
These powers attempt to capitalize on these problems by marketing a "Puritan" brand name of products, which supposedly are non-toxic and even beneficial. But only the wealthy few can afford them. The same wealthy few who are living within "secured" neighborhoods.
The race is on to save the human species.
