In the near future, when ecosystems on Earth are collapsing, the only paradise, Mayfly Island, is considered to be a bad omen. In this age of apocalypse, how will people see the continuation of life?

 

This is a prophetic graphic novel that integrates Austronesian culture with ecological catastrophe. In the near future when ecosystems on Earth are collapsing, the land is divided into citystates and small islands. People of all races live side by side in citystates; their abilities to fly and fight are vital; animals and plants are crucial bargaining chips in negotiations. A panorama of this world is presented in three chapters, which serve as the prequel to the upcoming animation film of the same title. The theme of the continuation of life is also explored through the choices made by three female characters. The exquisite sound design and rich soundtrack invoking a cinematic style.
