«Swan Song»

How about if we could protect our loved ones from grief? Cameron (Mahershara Ali) is terminally ill. He doesn't tell his pregnant wife Poppy (Naomie Harris) and their son Cory how bad things are for him.

In order not to leave his family alone, Cameron plans to replace himself: He wants to save Poppy and Cory from seeing him die and turns to the Arra Labs in Vancouver.

Clone without disease

There the unimaginable becomes possible: The team around Dr. Scott (Glenn Close) offers a service that changes the relationship to death. Customers are cloned, the new versions have all memories and the full subconscious – without the disease.

Cameron's freshly made doppelganger is called Jack: he fits into the family unnoticed, while Cameron spends his last days alone in the laboratory.

Lies as protection?

That he has to take this secret with him when he dies is a burden on him. The question that Cameron pursues: Is it right to lie to the family because you want to protect them?

Benjamin Cleary, who is also behind the script, directed it. At a press conference he explains that the story came about after he lost three people who were close to you: “When something like this happens, you can see how the grief penetrates to the outside and affects everyone else around you.”

«Swan Song» will be available on Apple TV + from December 17th.
