In labor we trust

The climate breakdown pushed humanity to the brink of extinction. Science defeated aging, expanding lifetime for those who survived. To avoid a new crisis, a very strict Birth Control System was set in place: a dead in exchange for a newborn. Even upper class members, like Moira, must stick to this rule.
A few weeks before her child’s labour, she joins Renato, a pregnant trans man who leads the Union of Killer Pregnants, to get her Birth Permit by delivering the needed corpses at all costs.
