Two assassins-for-hire have an hour to kill before their next hit. To help pass the time, they entertain themselves by sharing horror stories to one another. Which hit-man's story will be deemed most disturbing when all is said and done?

He's approached by Wesley Enterprises about allowing Amelia to be the test subject for an experimental program that will place her mind in a new, artificial body - and out of desperation, Carter agrees.

More philosophical and relationship sci fi story than typical sci fi
I saw this originally as a play and while I preferred that (reasons related to the politician character) I did enjoy the movie. I took my 14,16 and 18 year old daughter and we had spirited discussion afterwards. I think it would be excellent to watch and discuss in high school and science science and computer science classes. The only questionable material for kids may be brief mention of sex dolls and implied gun violence. Kids under 12 may be bored. Well acted for the most part, low tech, fun scenery for Iowans to see. They skip through the science details and focus on the real philosophical dilemmas facing tech builders and policy makers today. Worth seeing.
