In this movie, after lots of wars and self-destruction, humanity has decided the best way to survive is to make people dumb by placing a device on the head.

In the first scene the hero goes to a place that is like a brain-bordel. There's a pretty girl, and he puts the dumbing device of in order to play chess with her.. After a few moments turns out it's a police trap.
