In the year 2037, Clara dares to take the step of transplanting her brain from her invalid, wheelchair-bound body into a new, synthetic one. Now, she can stand up and walk again, feeling amazing–only her feelings are still lagging behind. She remembers loving her partner and her kids. VR goggles help her remember scenes from her earlier life. But the new body stays cold. Then disaster strikes.
