Pitch : « Gall.e is the first most human cyborg in the universe. And living in the body of an ordinary human instead of a cyborg with unique and fearsome functions, well, that really sucks. »
Story: Gall.e has lost her memory a bit. She knows that she is half-human, half-cyborg and that she escaped from a laboratory on Mars in which she was made. She took refuge for a few years in New New York. Since then, Gall.e has become mysanthropic, irreverent, sarcastic. She prefers cyborgs to humans and hates her organic body maintained by nanites. One of her vices leads her to spy on her neighbors and to take an interest in almost everyone she meets. Hel, her female-voiced robot sidekick, has managed to get her to exploit this vice by getting her to become a private investigator. Hel hopes that by helping people, Gall.e would become a better person. But it doesn’t really help her and besides, to vent her anger, she trains assiduously with Master Ryoda. Learning how to fight allows her to relax and to take on those who make her a little too angry.
The story of « Beat’Em All » is a tribute to pop culture through a mixture of investigations, fights, and especially humor!
« Beat’Em All » tells the story of a human cyborg, depressed and mysanthropic, whose life will be turned upside down following the forced custody of a child from the future and a dark sprawling investigation that will lead her to discover the origin of her own existence.
The intention of the story, which is meant to be humorous, is to follow the daily life of an anti-heroine, excessively rude and trapped by her condition. This last one questions us on our humanity, our own limits, our primary reactions, our anxieties, our fear of the other. The aim is to play down all this in the excesses of a character whose sincerity is as funny as it is authentic. Let’s observe our own lives from the point of view of a neutral reader and try to extract the surprising, the hilarious!
In this story, humor is not hidden. It prowls around and expresses itself whenever it has the opportunity. Whether it is through the banality of everyday life or in battles against gods in 100% cotton underwear (washed at 90°).
The tone is teasing, naughty, sexy, irreverent.
