Allan Dawson (Keith Roenke) is in a seemingly flatline relationship with live-in girlfriend Sylvia (Torie Tyson, better known for her singing than her acting skills): something is missing (other than the apparent age mismatch between the young Roenke and the more mature Tyson), a fact that becomes apparent when Allan is notified that his grandmother has bequeathed him land on the Greek Island of Santorini. Allan departs to investigate the surprise, thinking he will immediately sell the property to better his financial status. But once he arrives in Santorini he is mesmerized by the beauty of the island and is introduced to the inherited home by an agent Niko (Jorge Ameer). As Allan settles in he hears strange sounds and discovers they come form a locked closet containing a human clone - filthy and whimpering. The naked male is named D'Agostino (Michael Angels): apparently heading on a transatlantic voyage at sea from an Italian lab to America, D'Agostino is a human clone left for dead at the shores of Santorini. This lost cargo, commissioned by wealthy individuals for organ tranplants, is abandoned as the freight cannot be recovered.
Allan cleans the clone, feeds him, keeps him on a leash like a pet animal, an slowly becomes attached to D'Agostino.Read more ›
Allan initially treats D'Agostino as a unique pet, cleans him up and tries to teach him basic "No" and "Stay" commands, while feeding him from a dog bowl. But the attractive young clone, totally dependent on him, makes him realize what is missing in his own life, and he begins to form an emotional ... and eventually a sexual ... attachment that threatens to complicate his life from that point forward.
Billed on some sites as a "gay film," this really isn't, although it has content about repressed sexual desire, as well as a few points about gender identity. What it also has is filmmaker Jorge Ameer, who is known for his "over the top" films that seem to thrive on making the viewer uncomfortable, much in the way as people slow down to watch a bad accident on the freeway. The acting is adequate, though not great, and I had issues with both bad sound in some scenes and jerky photography that became a distraction. The ending was more than unsettling, though expected of this filmmaker. On the plus side is a pleasant musical score, and film of some of the most beautiful scenery you'll find anywhere. Some nudity and simulated sex, likely a strong R rating would have applied. While fans of the filmmaker would disagree, I can't give this more than three stars out of five.

Too weird. Amateurish. Couldn't watch all the way through. Was curious about the ending so looked it up. Eww! Glad I didn't watch.Published 5 days ago by Jean Munroe
Amazon prime unfortunately believes that collecting a bunch of movies like this one, will make people think they can compete with Netflix. Sorry, but I don't buy it. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Angela
The storyline is weird. Hard to understand why a guy would become attracted to a clone like figure of another man. The pacing is kind of slow. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Amazon Customer
I got this because I'm interested in the idea of cloning and how a person might be able to interact with its clone. It's not that the filmmaker missed the boat. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Earl A Hatleberg
