After the catastrophe, the world is clean, efficient, and productive. Integrated communication systems ensure well-being and security, privacy is protected by law, and evaluations carried out by artificial intelligences make social organization smarter and greener.
In the city, Rei lives an ordinary life as a micro-influencer, publishing content on environmental sustainability for the AGM group's platform.
Chiara is a system administrator in an autonomous mountain community where merfolk, eccentric beings, peacefully coexist with the inhabitants.
The exploration of a protected room leads Rei to unconventional schools, underground parties, and the hidden corners of a non-conformist society. Meanwhile, far from the city, Chiara grapples with her past amid forests and sunny fields, traversed by restless youths.
Destined to meet, the two women must challenge their certainties to face an inevitable transformation.
Between Black Mirror and solarpunk, 'Dragonflies in the Net' explores the role of technology and artificial intelligence in a post-climate catastrophe world, questioning what we mean by freedom in today's context.
