Divided into two parts - "The First Human Clone" and "Cloning the Dead" - producer/director Peter Williams' probing documentary reveals the controversy and technology of a particularly sensitive subject matter. In "The First Human Clone," we look at the controversial first attempts at cloning a human being. Under the guidance of Dr. Zavos, a dedicated team of doctors and scientists strive to develop cloning techniques despite vehement opposition from both the government and the public. Later, in "Cloningthe Dead," Dr. Zavos makes a shock announcement: his team has succeeded in producing an embryo from the tissue of a dead man. Before long, grieving relatives from across the globe are pouring in with requests to clone their deceased loved ones.
