In a leisure female-only Utopia where sex is the only taboo, a willful girl must escape from her restrained community to join her lover who has been sent away.
You got a serious point there. I’m sure that I want to build an apparent utopia. This is important for my story. The utopia should be believable and should offer some kind of advantages to the people. It’s more like logan’s run” where everybody is young (therefore over 30 must ”regenerate” in a ritual death) than thx1138” where we are clearly in a dystopia. My world is for sure a very pacific community where no one has to work and the basic needs are more than guaranteed (shelter, food…). At the beginning of the movie I want to show a paradise female-world. At first I thought about some kind of drug to compensate the lack of sex. But maybe it’s not enough. Now I come up with another idea. What if it is just virginity which is sacred and therefore penetration is forbidden?
You don’t miss what you’ve never known. The women could well think they’re living in a utopian world. From memory, in Logan’s Run they thought they were living in a great world until they found out what they were eating and that there was an outside with trees where you didn’t have to die at thirty. From IMDB: ‘An idyllic sci-fi future has one major drawback: life must end at 30.’
Maybe you just need to find a way of getting across that they think they’re living in utopia, but we the audience know otherwise. I also think you need a better description for your MC. Make her smart, not confused – she sees what others don’t. Even if she seems confused initially, she’s presumably going to pull it all together. And what’s with the ‘girlfriend’? No men, was she sent away for having lesbian sex? Maybe instead of some drug to chemically castrate the women, you could have some high-tech gadget that they all sleep with. LOL.
I loved Logan’s Run. Great movie.
