Ad Vitam (2018)
In a future where regeneration technology lets humans live indefinitely, a cop and a troubled young woman investigate a strange wave of youth suicides.

Near-Future refers to Sci-fi settings within, well, the near-future. Usually set exclusively on Earth, and presenting settings where the society and culture is very similar to our own, the setting showcases a parallel world to our own but with minor technological advances that drive the focus of the plot.

Near-future settings usually set out to make social commentary about the negative (or positive) impact of technologies that aren't necessarily unthinkable to us now, and in that it has meaningful crossover with Social Sci-Fi.
