This movie takes place in the future. The main character, Gwen sells cosmetic procedures for a company named Advanced health and living. Advanced is about to introduce a procedure that will transfer consciousness into a new body. Advance needed a younger female to be the spokesperson and they lay off Gwen who had done all research, marketing and was responsible for bringing this procedure to bear. Gwen has a young daughter “Jules” who clearly has a future and needs higher education. But after being let go she cannot afford to send her. She chose to undergo the procedure because she could not find another job due to the current views on women. Her boss mentioned that there was talk of not letting the women stay in the workforce as long and forcing them go back to the home. It was safer.
Gwen worked for a company that manipulated the insecurities of women by giving them the chance to transfer their mind into a new younger body, a more attractive body. She feed into the fears of women and It was not until she was let go from a job that was to provide for her and her daughter that she truly grasped the plight of women that were un-employable for being women.
The internal struggle for her was knowing that this was affront to her self-identity. How could she tell her daughter to be strong and be proud of who you are when the company she worked for focused on the fears of women? Her conflict was knowing that her daughter had only one chance in her life to attain the best education and this was by sacrificing her life.
