2029: In Japan, a historically mono-cultural nation, childbirth rates are at a critical low and the elderly are living increasingly long lives. This population crisis has precipitated a mass immigration of foreign medical workers from all over Asia - as well as the development of refined artificial intelligence to step in where humans fall short. Plum Rains elegantly broaches such important contemporary conversations as immigration, the intersection of labour and technology, the ecological fate of our planet and the future of its children.
