Somewhere in California is a secret industrial complex. Apparently well know to certain priveleged members of the inner circles of government, this factory has only one product: human clones!
These clones are identical replicas of members of the top 500 of politics and big business. Raised to adulthood, they are then frozen and cryogenically stored so that their body parts can be used to give more or less eternal life to the chosen elite.
The plan is to keep these clones in a state of almost childlike innocence and deny them any knowledge of the real world outside. They are brainwashed with dreams of a mythical place called "America" where (so they are told) they will go if they are lucky enougb to be selected.
A series of unplanned accidents leads to one of the clones finding out too much and becoming curious. One day he escapes from the clone farm and comes looking for answers in the "real" America... EXTRAS:
