Storyline

In a nightmarish future, the wealthy elite maintain The Circle, a stratum of society that can use technology for regeneration, although it's unclear if a person is regenerated into reality or if this New Life is a cyber world. Thomas Steiner is regenerated, thanks to his mother, and it seems her goal is for him to lose his homosexuality. He awakens from his regeneration with memories of Kazo, a man he loved. He goes in search of him. But, was Kazo ever real? And what will mother make of this son who leaves the safety of The Circle in search of something else? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Better Living thru Cloning?
13 April 2004 | by Havan_IronOakSee all my reviews

Young man, Thomas Steiner, awakens to find that he has died under unknown circumstances but has been "saved" through cloning. His mother is there when he awakes to assure him that all is now well and welcome him to his new life.

Thomas is not so sure. He seems to recall that he had a friend, Kazo, but his mother denies this. As we learn more about Thomas and his genetically enhanced life we begin to have doubts about the morality of what science might soon be able to do.

If you get worried when you hear about treatment centers that claim to be able to 'cure' homosexuality then this film will give you nightmares.

This was an interesting short and it's rare to see science fiction with a gay theme. Well worth the 27 minutes that it takes to see it.
