Armed with his wife's frozen eggs and a new resolve, Jim secures the services of a large biotech firm to help him create an heir who will be engineered to overcome the obstacles of common men. Meanwhile in the distant future Niskaa, the leader of a group of genetically modified beings, controls a race of worker clones in a super-industrialized, post-human Earth. As he tries to restore his decrepit empire he comes face to face with a young clone that shows an unprecedented capacity for reason and empathy.

This pretty much one man movie (writer/director/editor/designer) was made by a theater designer and he should keep his day job. Extremely low budget is NO excuse for dragging anyone on a journey the director cannot finish (just when you think something might happen, you realize it's almost over). I only continued watching, as sometimes indie films with some bad acting have other good features, but it was a complete mess and waste of time. I was shocked to see the wife played by a Broadway actress, but she was phoning it in, for sure in the beginning. Gah. NO excuse for that. Bad movies rarely make me angry but this one did. Skip this one unless you love train wrecks and being bored.
