Ki-te, a quadriplegic, goes on a first date with Sophia, a church friend of his mother. Ki-te feels sorry for Sophia for his body that cannot move freely, but Sophia, who understands him with an open heart, just seems lovely to him. Then, Sophia brings him to an LP Bar, as it is a place she knows very well.
Ki-te finds Sophia amazing as her taste in foods, movies, and the music fits his so well. The two make out in the LP bar. Unfortunately, the time passes for the train to start running again, and Ki-te and Sophia bid farewell to each other in front of the station. At dawn when the first snow falls, the snow that falls on Ki-te’s gloves melts away quickly. Meanwhile, Sofia meets someone on the subway.
Our film, called Period Drama, is a Victorian-era tale about eleven-year-old Georgiana Crimsworth, who gets her first period before ever having gotten the talk. Partly based on personal experience, this story aims to get across the idea that at that age, this sort of situation really makes you feel like you’re trapped in a gothic horror story.
Menstruation, and by extension women’s health as a whole, isn’t often discussed in popular media – and almost never in a medium like animation. Because of the implicit taboo that exists, there’s still a lot of shame and ignorance that surrounds a period, when that certainly shouldn’t be the case. Period Drama is our effort to address this, and hopefully make the subject easier to discuss, too.
