air pollution / SF / wealth gap / lesbian romance
In a world covered with fine dust, all the 'C's, who have received the expensive antibody injection typically for newborns, are able to live until the age of 100 and the 'N's are living a completely different life according to their lifespan that ends at the age of 30. Io, a 26-year-old college student who lived and thought to be 'C' for life, discovers that she has not been given the antibody injection due to an error at the hospital when she was born. For the first time in her life, Io is curious about the lives of 'N's. In particular, Io is curious of Joan, the only 'N' in school.
Joan's Galaxy is a sci-fi that reflects reality. Today, as fate is decided by our family's financial background, we imagine a world in which lifespan dramatically differs based on one's ability to get expensive antibody injections at the time of birth. The gigantic protective suit – instead of being romantic on a universal scale — is an extravagant sign that the Earth is so devastated that humans cannot live here anymore. Through the story of Io, a young woman who belatedly learns that someone else got his antibody injection due to the hospital's mistake, we find the possibility of romance in a dystopia. [KIM Sohui]
