It's the end of World War II. FDR's New Deal has redefined American politics. Taxes are at an all-time high. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki has created a fear of total annihilation. The rise of secret government agencies and sanctions on business have many watching their backs. America's sense of freedom is diminishing - and many are desperate to take their freedom back. Among them was a great dreamer, an immigrant who pulled himself from the depths of poverty to become one of the wealthiest and admired men in the world. That man was Andrew Ryan, and he believed that great men and women deserve better. So he set out to create the impossible, a utopia free from government, censorship, and moral restrictions on science - where what you give is what you get. He created Rapture - the shining city below the sea. But as we all know, this utopia suffered a great tragedy. This is the story of how it all came to be... and how it all ended.
