Dystopian SF drama (gets my attention starting off with a bit of Jerry Goldsmith's music from "The Invaders" episode of TZ) with enough idiosyncracy to be a bit more than just a pale imatation of Brave New World. Society is, of course, rigidly stratified and the elite are expected to be emotionally stunted and live a controlled, carefully monitored, life... The threat of interplanetary war, with one of the characters in the position of being able to start an apocalyptic war, is an interesting added element. Not bad.

In a distant future dominated by social castes, a high-ranking Navy officer is horrified to discover that his son wants to give up his high birth and join the lower classes in an effort to understand the truth behind existence.

A future version of Earth is concerned with balance and a class system that suppresses free thought and questions that seek real understanding. The son of a group one couple is asking such questions and risks reclassification to the lowest group. His father too remembers what that phase was like and encourages balance. Their notions of balance are challenged and they search for a truth they don't fully understand.
