(Feature film in development)
Written, Produced, and Directed by Ken Rowe
A feature film about vanity and the paradox of life: is birth a death sentence?
Marilyn Hardesty is an aging, terminally ill horror film icon who is determined to cheat death by having her mind transferred into the body of a younger woman. She has the means: in her late twenties, she inherited a biotech empire through a whirlwind courtship, marriage, and funeral. With Norman Baetz, her "personal assistant", and Dr. Laurence Fine, a brilliant, twisted neurobiologist, she pursues an obsession with immortality.
Through the lure of Reality TV, they entice three young women to Marilyn's remote estate. Ulterior motives unfold. Early experiments prowl the estate. The young women reach a grim realization: escape is the only means of survival. Can they evade Dr. Fine's cut and paste cybernetics? Will Marilyn achieve eternal life or drown in the fountain of youth?

In a violent post-civilized world, two friends try to live by their wits instead of brute force. Inventing their own religion, they masquerade as a traveling guru and his all-purpose acolyte, proselytizing for food and shelter. Falling in with a band of mercenaries, they realize the potential power of their deceit and question their motives. Is their scam spinning out of control? Can they use "belief" to restore order, or is it the means to seize power?
