In the distant future, most of the population lives in poverty in an area known as the Inland. There is an elite group, though, that is chosen to live in a virtual paradise, the Offshore. Every year, each 20-year-old gets a chance to make it to the island paradise by taking a series of tests. Only three percent of the candidates succeed and qualify to leave the impoverished Inland area. One of the newest residents of the Offshore is Michele, a naive young woman with no family who has a strong sense of justice.
Queer Plotline Timeline
None of the main characters are queer, but in the second season we see the Offshore where there are both lesbians and transgender characters. Ariel is the only transgender character seen on the inland. The implication is that transition surgery and therapy is only available to the affluent. We also learn that the Founding Couple is actually a Throuple.
