Storyline

In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic One-Child Policy, seven identical sisters (all of them portrayed by Noomi Rapace) live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman. Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday - each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home. Written by https://teaser-trailer.com

A fascinating exploration of government control in the name of good
14 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

This had been out on Netflix for a while and I hadn't really been drawn to watch it, but I am so glad I did.

The film portrays a dystopian future where overpopulation has lead those in power to create a one child rule, with chilling justifications for abhorable acts in the name of protecting humanity.

In a time when we already see more government interference and control in our own daily lives, its not too far of a stretch to consider a time when government might implement drastic measures to control population.

This film is a horrifying example of the peoples need to never allow this or anything like this, to ever happen.

Well written and thought provoking, I would definitely recommend watching this film.
