In the wake of humanity's extinction, a teenage girl is raised by a robot designed to repopulate the earth. But their unique bond is threatened when an inexplicable stranger arrives with alarming news.
After a global apocalypse, an android called "Mother" is responsible for repopulating Earth using a collection of embryos stored in an underground failsafe bunker. 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

Director Grant Sputore said of the casting of Hilary Swank in this film: "It is a privilege to welcome Hilary Swank to our film. She is a remarkable performer who always brings tremendous commitment and honesty to the screen. I'm excited about the journey ahead with Hilary and the talented Clara Rugaard". See more »
When the mysterious woman (Hillary Swank) is initially in the medical bay with Mother, Daughter is outside the closed door and can't hear what they are saying. In a subsequent scene, the door is locked and the woman and daughter on the opposite side freely converse without difficulty.
They are speaking through an intercom. You can clearly hear the intercom turning on and off, and one scene even show Daughter turning the intercom on. See more »
More 'Moon' than 'Terminator' but I love both those films so that's fine. It isn't a big special effects (yawn) film which is a big plus. An interesting story with similarities with others you've seen but different enough and with some twists. You care about the characters and it's quite gripping. I enjoyed it and recommend it.
