Premiered at Sundance Film Festival 2015

Synopsis:

In a cutthroat future metropolis, middle-aged single mother Gwen (co-writer Jacqueline Kim) 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. A Special Jury Award winner at Sundance 2015, this visually inventive feminist take on dystopian sci-fi delves deep into themes of familial sacrifice, the anxiety of aging, and technology’s ever-tightening grip on modern selfhood.
