A thriller pertaining to cloning
25 October 1998 | by See all my reviews

A rather politically motivated thriller detailing a University researcher's discovery of secret cloning experiments at a large genetics company. When her life is endangered by the evil creater of the experiments (played by Hagman), she must seek out each of the genetic clones in order to prove her claims to an unbelieving public.
