The year is 2520. Welcome to New Dawn (formerly known as Canada) where life is mapped out for each and every individual, and anything against the norm is punished by death.
Emilia and Sophia meet on the first day of Medical College, and almost immediately, an unknown passion ignites between them.
What happens when two girls fall deeply in love, in an authoritarian society where same sex love is strictly forbidden?
How can they even begin to acknowledge these feelings when they risk death for even thinking of it?
Few talk about it, for fear of being overheard, rumours speak of a vibrant place called Haven, where people can be whoever they want to be.
As they draw closer to each other, the girls begin to question every inch of their chartered existence. How can they escape this terrible place, when every corner is marked, patrolled and accounted for?
It began with the Coronavirus. People got out of control, stopped listening, started spreading the disease like wildfire. It became stronger, started killing more than it saved.
Wars were started over antidotes, nations destroyed and perished over hundreds of years until there were only two countries (who happened to produce their own antidotes), were left standing.
Reluctantly, they agreed to leave one another alone, for the sake of the human race and cut off all communication with each other and cut ties with the rest of the broken world. No one in. No one out.
They re-christened their two nations in the wake of the broken world: New Dawn and Haven.
Our story takes place in New Dawn. For the population of New Dawn, no other world exists. Any type of travel is forbidden, unheard of, even sailing - New Dawn is all they know.
The hierarchy in New Dawn is very clear. The Hiers control everything. To stop any further wars, or conflicts, they created what they believed was an airtight society.
Everyone knows their place. Jobs are chosen for individuals at birth. Each go to a school focused on their Speciality. All jobs are Necessary for the successful running of society. All people are paid the same, apart from Hiers.
There is one religion, Divinity, that worships not God, but the Hiers and their power.
Partners are pre-determined based upon skills, they are swiftly introduced then married off at the age of 19 and are allowed only two children.
Creativity and freedom are strictly forbidden. Anything or anyone that demonstrates traits that appear to be Abnormal, eg. (Preference towards the same gender, alcoholics, addicts, people with mental health issues) are killed instantly.
