Reads like a mixture of Across the Universe, The Matrix and The Twilight Zone.

Seeing is believing, right? But what if what you see and experience isn't real but lies? You've been told the world outside is toxic. The cameras show a sick brown and grey wasteland though the old books show it should be green and blue. Criminals and volunteers are forced outside to clean the cameras before they succumb to the poisonous atmosphere. Three years earlier Sheriff Holston's wife volunteered believing they'd all been fed lies and the life they're living isn't real, that she won't die once outside and promised to come back for her husband. He's tired of waiting for her, he's decided it's time to take the ultimate risk...
