Adam Slope is a genetics professor at Andover University. His wife Dawn is a beautiful artist who he loves more than life itself. After she dies in a fire at her glassblowing studio, Adam clones her from a strand of hair that remained on an old hairbrush. But the woman he creates is different than the woman he married. So he tries again. And again, enlisting the help of his lab assistant to recreate Dawn’s seminal life events, all the while being targeted by an insurance investigator who is convinced that Dawn’s death was staged for the money. Adam is desperate to get his wife back exactly the way she was, but there are only so many strands of hair on the brush, and with each attempt his chances of getting her back grow further and further away.
