A mother faces extreme choices to provide for her daughter
29 April 2016 | by (Cardiff, Wales) – See all my reviews

In the near future where older women are increasingly marginalized, a middle- aged single mother who works as a spokesperson for a Bio-Medical firm faces losing her job as the company look to bring in a younger replacement.

Faced with being unable to provide for her talented daughter she agrees to undergo the extreme and experimental medical procedure the company has developed that would see her consciousness transferred to the body of a younger woman.

Excellent, relevant science-fiction with beautiful performance from Jacqueline Kim as the mother and Samantha Kim as the daughter.

Rivals Ex Machina as the best sci-fi movie of recent years.
