Her teenage daughter, who she raised from an embryo, is submitted to classes and tests to assess her development as human being. When the daughter finds a mouse inside the base, she suspects that the outside is no longer contaminated. One day, she sees a wounded woman outside the base and lets her in. Soon she learns something that will affect her relationship with Mother and which will change her forever.Written by

This movie is similar to Ex Machina in some ways. It's suspenseful and keeps you guessing. There's many secrets that are unravelled throughout the movie, can be dark at times and is executed well. It centres more on human morals, compassion and responsibility.
There's a small cast but they're more than enough to carry the movie. Great acting, great character development and plot. Give it a go.
