In a world where families are limited to one child due to overpopulation, a set of identical septuplets must avoid being put to a long sleep by the government and dangerous infighting while investigating the disappearance of one of their own.
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
The adult sisters can be distinguished by their hair styles: Sunday - pony tail, Monday - long wavy hair, Tuesday - red head, Wednesday - mid-length hair, Thursday - short hair, Friday - knit hat, Saturday - platinum blonde. See more »
When Dafoes' character is teaching math, he got the transformations of the equations on the whiteboard wrong. The second line does not follow from the first one. See more »
In the last 50 years we've doubled our population, tripled the amount of food and water we use, and we have quadrupled the use of fossil fuels. Every four days there's a million more people on the planet. How is the world going to cope with this explosion in population.

Don't understand what the low ratings are about!!
This is a great movie! Shot very well and the main actress is amazing for playing all seven characters. This movie itself is a little bloody for me, but besides that I quite like it. I keep seeing reviews indicating a lower rating, but I don't know why! This film is exciting and has a great story line that makes you think about our current situation in the world. It makes you wonder just how far human society will go when technology starts to really become more advanced.
