Fireflies is a dystopian sci-fi drama set in the conflict zone between the traditional and the futuristic. Amika, a mixed-race Japanese non-binary youth, escapes a fertility centre in Japan to avoid execution for being “mixed-blood”. They are forced to leave behind their mother, Yui, a notorious Japanese rebel who gave birth to Amika in hiding after violating mandatory entry into the national fertility program. Amika encounters Suzuki in the forest, a youth who fled his military training camp after questioning its nationalist curriculum. Realizing they have more similarities than differences, they become unlikely allies, working together to free Yui.
