In a cutthroat future metropolis, middle-aged single mother Gwen loses her job at a biotech corporation that places its customers in desirable new bodies. Alienated from her family and unemployable in a youth-obsessed marketplace, she worries about affording her gifted daughter’s prep school tuition and contemplates undergoing the identity altering procedure she was once hired to sell. This dystopian sci-fi delves deep into themes of familial sacrifice, the anxiety of aging, and technology’s ever-tightening grip on modern selfhood. Winner of the Special Jury Prize for Collaborative Vision: Dramatic at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. 2015, US, in English and French with English subtitles, 90 minutes.
